Wow, Melissa, what a beautiful radiant bride! Your dress is gorgeous, such an amazing achievement. Your Granny must have been bursting with joy to see such a glorious reinvention of her gown. Wishing you and your husband many happy years of marriage!

This has been so amazing to follow along with... I can't wait for the final pics. I have heard recommended for cleaning (or at least freshening) delicate fabrics, a mixture of vodka and water. Apparently this is what textile conservators use. Not sure what the exact mix was, however.

What an amazing process! Congratulations on the wedding (and of course the gown, too). I can't wait to see the photos.

I also have been following on your blog. I can't wait to see the final product. You have put a lot of your personalities into the wedding, now it's time to enjoy it. Have a great day on Saturday!

Like Michelle, I've been following your process on your blog. Can't wait to see the final photos! You've been extraordinarily generous with your knowledge... this series is a great blueprint for anyone who wants to sew their own wedding gown (especially the piece on the underpinnings). Now: advice from a mom - take a big breath and ENJOY your wedding!

That is such an awesome, and beautiful project. I can't wait to see pics of you in the dress after the event. And have the most wonderful wedding day(s).

As always you're an innovative & very informative sewer, & I know your dress will be fabulous. What's even more amazing is that you were blessed with healing of your serious illness, so I trust you're extremely thankful for that. Wishing you both much happiness.
