Its time for a wedding dress!

How will she reach anything?


Greg and I are engaged! 
(and have been, for a little while, but we just got around to getting a ring and making it public)


(This has also meant he has gotten stuck with all my ramblings on about lace and silhouettes and such.   For all that he is learning to sew, I think this may have been a bit much. - SOOOO now I get to yammer on to the internet, and the joys of fancy fabrics I usually forbid myself since they just don't fit into my life.)

Anyhow, I've set myself a few rules for the dress:
1: I need to be able to breath freely and move easily (so no corsets, trains, long tight sleeves, etc)
2: I need to be able to dance without falling over (so just slightly shorter than floor length)
3: I need to be able to use the bathroom without a squad of helpers.  (the skirt can't eat me alive)

I know I want some sort of straps or other over-the-shoulder-something, a long, full skirt, and some kind of textured embellishment - but otherwise, I'm not sure what it will end up looking like.  Right now my thoughts are running along these lines:







okay, probably not this.  I would catch on everything, but its a pretty amazing skirt.

    1. Thank you! (the top one makes me think of some kind of hamster / human hybrid that has gone horribly wrong)

  3. Congratulations! And I completely understand your list, as mine was very similar. The third and fourth pictures are especially lovely! (Not counting that marshmallow at the top, of course.)
