It’s finished!

OK, mostly finished. I’m still waiting for some tiny Swarovski crystals to arrive.

Now I just have, um, everything else to do.

The last piece of the dress is assembled!

I didn’t get as much embroidery done this weekend as I would’ve liked, as I wound up reworking the design a bit first, and then had to spend this morning getting hacked code off my websites!

In other news, we’ve decided to take a trip down to Florida in September. I really didn’t want to spend any unnecessary money before the wedding, but since the Adventurer’s Club closing gives us an excuse to go down for a planning session at Disney… Or is it the other way around?! I was stressed about it, but now I’m pretty excited, as our photographers are free for a session while we’re down there. Now we get to have even more amazing photos! 🙂

OK, I haven’t made a dress update in a while. Mostly because I haven’t accomplished that much due to spending an unfortunate amount of weekends in Ohio.

I’ve been order supplies so that I can get started on the embroidery soon – beautiful silk threads from Yodamo, and tiny satin sequins from Cartwright’s.

something must be wrong

The mock-up is FINISHED! The whole thing went suspiciously smoothly; Absolutely nothing went wrong, and the sleeves, the only part I really had to draft, came out just as I wanted on the first try. It even took exactly as much fabric as I estimated.

I am either incredibly lucky, or incredibly good. As I know well that I have undeniably bad luck, I can only surmise that I am awesome.

Here are the sleeves, which make me feel fabulous.

A better photo of the back. You can see here there’s a lot of fabric puddling on the ground – There will be a small train in the back, and I haven’t cut that piece to the proper length yet.

Now I get to order my silk, and take next weekend off!
