Fancy Wedding Pictures!

Shocking no one, the professional pictures are far and away better than the ones taken on people's cell phones.

It was such a crazy day - and I still only remember it in snatches and bits

But I'm really happy with the pictures, and more importantly, beyond happy in my marriage.  (yes, yes, we're a month in.  But still.) 

Greg is pretty much the best.

and we are baked potatoes. or possibly burritos.

..and we're married

All I have is cell phone pictures from friends and relatives -- but more when we get the fancy ones from the photographer.

This is one of the few that shows the sparkle --  I really dislike how most of the pictures have turned out - all those months of beading look like a lot of gray lines.

The beading continues

Don't mind me, beading onto a single layer of chiffon.  Very, very, very slowly.

The chiffon-only beading is happening in the center bust, due to the nature of the overlay, and all around the transition from the opaque section to the overlay.   It is... delicate work.   But I'm chugging along.

The plan is to have the top beading line mirror the area around my hips - with slightly variegated end points.

even more beading

The blizzard was fabulous.   Canceling plans stinks, but soooo much beading.

more beading

I've put together the upper bodice - so the next week or two are all about beading.

final muslin!

The center front is peach instead of white -- don't be confused, this is still the muslin.   (Yes, I started beading early, I got excited, but the place that still needed work was the bust not the midriff... mostly...) 

Not much to say as this point, but behold!   Especially behold the wonky bathroom lighting!

Behold more!

Goodness, gracious, yet more!

In the meantime, I'm practicing my rolled hems.

bead, bead, bead.

I'm sewing them on in sets of three, anchoring the third with a sort of back stitch (I don't know proper beading terminology).  This will be the midriff - beading will continue up the sheer part of the bodice and down to around my hips.
