It's officially finished. Last Friday night (at approximately 10:30 p.m.), I put in the last stitches on my wedding gown! But I'm afraid this is all I can show you until after the wedding:

Everything went together smoothly -- there were a few hiccups along the way (well, if you count cutting out the wrong sleeve pattern as a hiccup... *ahem*), but no problems that couldn't be sorted out quickly. The "official" dress went together in ten days -- not counting the several mock-ups that I've made over the past few months!

Friday was quite a marathon sewing day. I think I put in about eight hours (most of which was spent hand sewing), which is probably the most time I put in on any one day. I must say, the gown looks much better in white than it does in purple...

Now I can't wait to actually wear it! I'll be posting pictures and details as soon as possible after the wedding!


  1. Oh how thrilling! I'm so excited for you. :) I simply can't wait to see the whole dress, you always make such beautiful things, I can only imagine what this will be like. :) Congratulations on finishing it, I hope the rest of your preparations are completed equally smoothly!

  2. Oh, must we wait? Oh well, I must be resigned... I can not wait until the wedding though! Then we shall be able to see pictures! It must be beautiful!
