The Wedding

Dresses for the wedding were a resounding success!

Well, I did lose several nights of sleep over them, and I was still finishing them up in the hotel!

Also, I was using a crepe backed satin. I totally intended to make my skirt with the satin side out (which I did) but my jacket with the crepe side out, which I did not. I was so sleep deprived by the time I got to mine, that I absolutely could not convince my brain that the crepe side was the "right side" and kept turning pieces backwards, so I gave up and just made that shiny too.

But I think we looked wonderful.

MIL's dress and jacket was a job and a half, but that turned out wonderfully too, and I got nothing but compliments on it (after the gasps of astonishment: "You made that? Wow, it's gorgeous!")
