Call me crazy but this season I have have had 3 brides already who bought dress number one and then fell out of love with it and went back and bought dress number two.
But one bride has gone completely off the charts with 3 dresses.
Her first $1300 Love Marley Watters dress was “too revealing and needed more back straps” like this dress, so at her first fitting I showed her how we could replicate her dream dress version with criss-cross straps and extra loops. The zipper would be taken in too for a nice tight fit. Add a simple one point French bustle and voila’ just what she wanted…
Until she decided what she REALLY wanted was more lace and more coverage, so she bought this $3000 dress from Grace Loves Lace of Australia which seems to have very little lining:
But then the thought occurred to her:
I purchased some nice wedges and another simple ivory dress from Free People which came earlier today. I thought it might be nice to have as a dancing dress if the Inca became too much to wear all evening. I’m sensitive in that way and always choose comfort over style even though the Inca felt very comfy. I was more worried about getting sweaty on the dance floor and wanted something free and loose. So it’s no surprise that after spending some time in this 3rd dress that I like the way it feels the best.
That being said, I think I will still keep the Inca in case I want to go with a more traditional gown instead of a simple dress. I’m attaching an image of the final dress choice just for fun! It’s a size 6 and a bit big so I reordered a 4… Who knows, I may be calling you again!!
So dear readers for $148 she will be wearing this dress.
The one good thing about this bride is that she wanted to pay me for the first fitting and sent a check. I wish her well and hope that she doesn’t change her mind again before the wedding date!
With 3 weddings this weekend and 3 weddings next weekend, I’m running around my sewing room like a headless chicken and don’t know how some of you can create blog posts so often, even daily, with such interesting content…such variety, quilting, felting, dyeing and re-organizing your sewing room and your lives…Holey Moley! Bless you and stay cool!
