AMAZING! It’s so, so pretty. I’m in a similar boat: my mom and I were going to make my dress together, but ended up stumbling on a gorgeous thriftstore dress for $25. It needs so edits but we’re up to the challenge.

Your dress is so gorgeous, I’m thrilled it worked out for you! Funny how plans change, haha

danaberries :  Thank you! I’m so grateful she’s willing to put the time and energy into the project, and let me ride on her seamstress coat tails. I’m just a beginner but she’s an expert.

The edits will be taking off some discolored sequins and a totally new skirt (similar shape but the poofs are misshapen and I’d rather it just be full, not literally poofy). Still playing around with how to do the skirt; might turn the existing dress into a cocktail length and then slip a long skirt over it so they’re separates, or may work with the existing fabric to make a new attached skirt. 

One thing I really love about yours is those intricate details. The lacework is so different and varied. Gorgeous!
