Flashback August 2, 2001

Eleven years ago I married my husband.  And because this is my sewing blog, I introduce the dress that I made to be married in.  I am still happy and proud of that gown from a decade ago.  I drafted it myself and hand beaded the waist and hem circumference.  I can’t even guess how many hours I spent with that.  My skills (and my person) have matured and grown a lot in the years I’ve been married.  I can say that Ryan and I have worked hard, played hard, and loved hard in these years.  We’ve been blessed with accomplishments, change, and growth.  A redo now would certainly produce a better garment.  Perhaps one day I’ll have the chance to potentially make those changes in gowns for my own daughters.  I cut my wedding dress up in 2005 when I made it into tiny little baby clothes for my twins. 


PS Love you babe!SCAN0008
