Morning at Lucas' loft is lovely, with the herb garden basking in the sunlight.
|We got straight to work, binding the waistband seam with satin.... by hand!|
|About halfway we traded off cause it was getting tedious for one person!|
|The inside of the almost finished dress!|
|Last step: inserting the zipper!|
|Well, almost. There was still some work to be done by hand.|
|But we took a brunch break when Lucas woke up.|
Eggs waiting to be poached, and Hollandaise Sauce waiting to be drizzled on the eggs.
|Berry pancakes on the griddle.|
|Berry pancakes and syrup, bacon, and Eggs Benedict. Yum!|
|The Jennah came over for a second fitting, and the bodice fit her like a glove!|
|The finished dress!|
When Jennah first mentioned that she wanted us, her friends--with no professional seamstress experience--to sew her wedding dress, I was a bit nervous. But I'm so glad I agreed cause it was such a fun project!
We made the whole dress--from design to finish--in five days, which was very impressive. And I got a chance to spend some quality time with two ladies whom I don't get to see enough.
Thanks Annika and Jennah!
