Today the wedding dress saga ends. The wedding dress is complete and the bride happy. I am elated, relieved and strangely a little deflated.
This morning I sewed the crochet lace to the neck line, attaching it to the lining using a prick stitch. I then moved onto the long and arduous task of hemming. Back when I wrote my first blog about the wedding dress Veanna from sosewlovely got in touch to tell me about her experience of making Vogue 1030 and today I am so thankful she did. She has a great blog with detailed photographs on making a hairline hem which is great for such sheer fabrics.
The hemming of both the lining and the underskirt went relatively smoothly and quickly. The main skirt however took two hours to hem. There was just so much fabric, and so much effort in ironing and sewing. And then it was done.
I checked the dress over, cutting the last few remaining stray threads. I ironed the skirt with more attention than I have ever paid when ironing. Then there was nothing left to do but try it on once more.
As S. glided across the floor the skirt billows is just the right way. And for S. it’s just perfect.
