Older second-time brides can be so easy to work with. They want classic lines and good fit.
This bridesmaid dress fits the bill and it came with straps that we could use to make things secure.
The skirt needed hemming and straps sewn on and of course push-up bra cups.
All my brides are told that tight underpants make the dress skim the body so that will be the next purchase for this lovely woman.
The Oregon Gardens were still under the shadow of winter but the tropical greenhouse had some lovely specimens. There was a carnivorous plants that waits for insects to fall down the tube and then digests them and of course, Cymbidium orchids.
On the last day, since it was my birthday, Mr Mole had a dinner planned for the two of us and just before we were leaving the hotel, there was a knock on the door. I answered it and was in shock! There stood my youngest daughter who lives in Washington, DC, 3000 miles away. She had just finished a week-long seminar in Seattle and rented a car, drove 5 hours, to surprise me!Now, it is back to the brides and deadlines…more vintage dresses to modernize from WAY BACK…stay tuned!
