    DD wedding dress

    My "hippie" daughter asked me to make this dress for her wedding. I bought the material 30 years ago just for that purpose. She bought a fancy dress for her first wedding, but wanted homemade for her second. She thinks simple and homemade will be good luck, since fancy and store-bought didn't last. My husband took the other picture.

    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    That's beautiful! I love the fabric and the lace over the arms - she'll love it, I'm sure!

    Beautiful job and the lace is gorgeous. It pays to hold on to things! My DD wanted me to make her wedding dress back in the 90's, but I declined even though I previously did 2 fancy prom dresses for her. I did end up making the 3 bridesmaids' dresses though as it was a fairly simple pattern. She wanted me to make the wedding cake too, for petes sake! That was my pre-quilting life though. Now I've made it clear my machine is set up for quilting!

    How beautiful her dress is, as well as the hands that made it. May it be blessed day on her wedding day.
