@Asichka:  WOW really a dress made by a friend? Hello. jealous! 😀  That sounds amazing!

That dress is amazing!

I am having my mother’s dress redesigned.  It is insane to sit around waiting for your dress, without any idea how it is really going to turn out.  However, the nervies go away when I tell myself that everything can be changed.

That sounds very sweet and sentimental. I hope everything is to your liking. Lucky gal!

Not having a friend do it, but I’m making my own dress. My body type is ususual, and I had that “YOU. DRESS. GET ON MY BODY RIGHT NOW.” feeling about a discontinued design.

Very pretty dress!

And I wish I wasn’t totally hopeless in the sewing arena – would love to make my own clothes all the time, let alone wedding dress! 🙂  I categorize making clothing patterns & sewing with other things I’ve deemed impossibly difficult, like writing music (especially jazz piano), beyond-high-school-math, etc. 😛

I was until my friend bailed. 🙁 

I really hope it works out exactly to plan.

To all my fellow brides – best wishes.
