Almost missed another Mrs!

For whatever reason Blogger won't allow me to post a picture of the Electric Blue Wedding dress I made, but there it is.

My friend got married to her lovely fiance in early October, and - after seeing my dress in August - asked me if I was willing to make her wedding dress. Well, how could I say no to that incredibly honouring request? We spent some time on picking a pattern, chose another one, and another one, and finally decided it had to be a mix of all of them. I sketched and drafted, made a muslin, but we still weren't 100% happy with it. Then, after seeing the muslin, and even when seeing how the actual fabric behaved during the fitting process, we chose to go yet another way at the last moment. The end result is this electric blue wedding dress for my gorgeously curvy friend.
