My latest sewing project . . .

(Ok, technically my latest project was replacing buttons on a shirt, 
but that doesn't make a very good post.) :)

In May one of my cousins and good friends got married, and I was honored to be the wedding dress designer and seamstress! After a trip to the local fabric store to check out our options, we brainstormed together a bit and I sketched out a design that would incorporate the embroidered fabric and vintage-style silver buttons she wanted.

The dress has two parts: a simple white underdress with a lace overlay and an embroidered, full length jacket/overdress with short sleeves, three buttons on the waistband, and a twirly, Gunne Sax style ruffle at the hem.
