Okay, so I have a custom gown due in two weeks – it’s a super special project for me, and I’m SO EXCITED that I finally get to devote some real time to it, because . . . it’s due in two weeks. Just kidding. I mean, no, that is accurate, but the project itself is so incredibly awesome. Check it:
Tiered, lace-trimmed silk voile. Can you stand it?! I love it so much. I love staring at it on the dress form while I type this – it looks so gorgeous. And I love the lady who will wear it next month in her wedding – my sweet friend, Erin. We go waaaay back to high school, when she had a nose-piercing and I was wearing floral bell-bottoms (it was the mid-90s) and with our other awesome friend Stacey, we would hang out with the cute burn-outs and sneak cigarettes at an Alanis Morissette concert (I told you, it was the ’90s!) and try to pull people over on country roads with a car alarm. We were so COOL. Wah wah. And now she’s marrying the most amazing guy, and I could not be happier for her. I can’t wait to put the finishing touches on her gown (I’m working on the skirt now) and send this off to her. I can’t wait to see her get married in it. !! And I can’t wait to dance at her wedding. I really am fortunate. I get to do the coolest things.
