Beautiful! Your daughter makes a lovely bride enhanced by your beautiful work! I love every one of the dresses and the accessories. ALL of them! As I perused your photos, I did wonder, since it looks like your sewing room is set up on the dining room table, whether your family ever had meals at home during the last year while you were working on these dresses! LOL! Will you be reviewing all the rest, too? Please do! Congratulations!

I am totally in awe of your beautiful creation for your dear daughter. The dress is beautiful as is your dd wearing it. But to think of all the other things you made as well! I think you might have gone on vacation instead of the bride! I did 2 weddings in a year from the first betrothal to the last walk down the aisle but I did not do but alterations on the bride's dress. And a total of 12 brides maids and 3 flower girls between the two. Plus a wool cape for one dd and a frew other things. My outfit was much more simple too. I don't know how you did it, it looks like a full time job! Pat yourself on the back and take a much deserved rest!.

What a GREAT review. The dress is SPECTACULAR, and your daughter is so lovely wearing it. This is a true keepsake, with all the love and effort put into this dress. I love the pictures of all of you adding the beads/sequins to the lace. :o)

This is incredibly beautiful and although the silk charmeuse was difficult to work with it is too gorgeous for words. Congratulations on a job well done and best wishes to your daughter - lucky girl to have a mother like you and lucky you to have a daughter who would ask you to do this for her!!
