    Made my daughter's wedding dress

    I have been working on this dress for months. I adapted a pattern. It has a lot of hand beading.

    Very beautiful! My mother made my wedding dress. Even though the marriage ended I still have the dress because she made it andvit's very special because of that. Neither of my daughters were small enough to fit into it , so they weren't able to use it.

    This dress is amazing!! You did a beautiful job!! I work in a bridal shop as a seamstress and I can appreciate the work you put into it. Your daughter will always cherish the dress.

    Just beautiful! I made my own wedding dress, 43 years ago. I know how much work it is, but entirely worth it!

    Great job!

    So beautiful - gown and daughter! She looks very proud of what you created for her. My mother made my gown too, using the lace from her own wedding dress. I know how your daughter feels, and share your joy.

    Gorgeous! What a treasure for her to have her perfect one of a kind dress made by her mother. Great memories for the both of you.
