Nothing excites a family quite as much as a wedding!
This Saturday, my nephew Dustin will celebrate marriage with his wonderful fiancé’ Courtney.
This is time to gather the family;
prepare special foods and beverages;
and not to be forgotten,
fashion clothing and gifts.
Two weeks ago I mentioned an endeavor for moi.
About that silk dress…
We are almost done!
- The dress is an Anne Klein Vogue pattern –V1223
- Fabric: a fabulous Italian silk crepe print
- Lining: silk georgette from Mood fabrics
All in all, the dress went together well. It is asymmetric in design. The one glitch was that the right pleated panel “grew” a bit and I needed to create a dart to fit it properly. No problem as the print camouflages it perfectly!
Finished product and accessorized version to come over the next few weeks…
