A few years ago I made a wedding gown for my brother's fiance - boy did I feel appreciated! Stunning gown, beautiful gesture of love for the couple, and just perfect in it's simplicity.

That is simply stunning! And the bride looks like a lovely cross between Minnie Driver and Charisma Carpenter. Great job, and I really like the muslin, too! -Ann

The dress is soooo beautiful, Linda! Simple and elegant. I loved seeing the detail pictures of your sewing techniques. Wow! What wonderful talent you have! Thank you so much for writing the review!

I had to laugh knowing you have a housefull of boys when I first saw "wedding dress", and saw it was in such a beautiful white fabric. That in itself is a major feat - that you not only kept it clean, but did this so nicely with all else you must have to do. BRAVO!!
