I've been following your progress with this on your blog, and I can't wait to see pics of you modeling your final dress--I know you'll look amazing in it. Have a great time at your wedding!

Enjoyed reading about your deconstruction/restyling/construction process. You are going to be the most fashionable bride! Can't wait to see the dress on you. Best wishes to you and the groom!

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.

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!

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!

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.
