- Wedding: July 2013
Hello Bees… I cannot believe the wedding is just around the corner. Although, my final fitting yesterday solidified it for me – 11 days and counting!!
The seamstress kept commenting that I had lost weight during my first fitting, but I thought that was just something they told brides to help them feel better… well, yesterday, she confirmed that the dress was taken down by 2 sizes. Goodness. It was still a bit loose on top, so they showed my Maid/Matron of Honor how to tie my corset so it will stay snug. 🙂
You may recall from my prior posts, this is a Sottero & Midgley Brenda. It’s very similar with the Adorae, but with a beaded belt. I had the belt removed and a portion of the sequin appliqué used to make my black sash (it’s much cheaper bees – the sash ended up being only $25!!). However, I’m not too keen on the cut off point on the sides of the appliqué, so she’s going to work on it to see if we can make it pointed, like the sash of my first pic.
Please be honest – what do you think?

Excuse the back fat!! 🙁
