My friends Gladyce and Ryan got married this last Tuesday.
She the first of my close friends to get hitched here in college land so it was numbingly wonderful. I am truly happy for them both and I hope that the rest of their lives are as awesome as they are.
I am here to talk about my dress.
I've been sewing for quite some time, so I know my way around a sewing machine and a pattern. However, this was by far the most complex thing I have ever tried. I found it to be both confusing and wonderfully simple.
That's what I love about sewing, The only hard part is figuring out what the directions mean. After that it's just putting it all together.
Overall I'm quite happy with myself. I got the dress finished in time, It looked good, and it didn't even fall apart while I was wearing it.
Some of the seams definitely could have used some improvement, but that's for the next dress.
For those of you who are interested I left of the petticoats because I wanted the skirts to be slimmer.
I also left out of the boning the bodice and opted for straps instead, Although that was more out of a sense of laziness then of style.
