Besides weird phone call requests for my work at 7:30 in the morning up until 9:30 pm at night, I also get emails asking for weird or last minute jobs.
Here is one that came in this week:
Let’s see…2 weeks before the wedding, has to be chocolate brown, long and flowing, V-neck, wrap front and satin and organza….hmmm. Some time between the engagement a year ago and now didn’t she think….chocolate brown outfit…I’d better shop around? I said no to this job because this type of outfit would surely make me nuts…
This next one came in and just made me laugh:
Thank you, cindy
Since nowhere on my real website does it say “knitting and crochet done”, I’m wondering what she has been smoking in her “farm” off-the-beaten-track hideaway?
But back to brides, and what did the 17 year old wear to her wedding???
Three point bustle with 4 layers of chiffon, 4 layers of gathered netting, vertical boning every inch WToo dress. The center back zipper was removed and I took 2 inches out of each side all the way down. The straps were re-enforced with 1/4 inch twill tape and moved more to the center to stay up. The bust area was heavily padded to fill out the bodice. The one thing about taking in at the zipper is the fact that the more you take in and the fabric becomes diagonal the more you need more hooks and eyes at the top to keep it tightly closed so this girl got 2 and those 2 are the only things holding it on her.
A special survey for all of you:
Is this the perfect wedding dress? 3,000 brides pick every detail from sleeve style to embellishment to create £15,000 gown in the UK.
Have a super week everyone!
