Isn’t this just the most romantic dress ever? It hugs the curves and makes the most of the model.
My bride showed up the first week of February and swore she was going to go to the gym and lose weight before her May wedding.
Great, 3 months of hard work will surely make that dress fit better and all it will need is the hemming and a 3-point lace bustle, 1 point satin bustle and a strip of twill tape to snug up the top of the bodice.
And now the “after photos”:
All I can say when she announces that she has been working REALLY hard and has lost 8 pounds is “well, the top hugs your bust better now”.
Unfortunately, I cannot let out any seams that would add ease where she needs it. The elastic button loops will be stretched to the max and probably give way during the reception and dancing. Can anyone even sit in this tight of a dress? The saving grace is that she is wearing a very long veil so that will cover up the back for a while.
With 2 weeks to go, I was told that she would really knuckle down and lose more weight as she flew out the door to her waiting limousine filled with all her bridesmaids for a 6 hour wine tour in the valley.
Everything is bursting out and ready to grow!
Mr Mole has been busy building raised beds and planting 50 new asparagus roots although you cannot harvest them for 2 years.
Even the perennial raspberry plants are reaching for the sky! Luckily, this year Mr Mole has put 4 steel poles in the ground so I can control them with twine when they get so heavy with Autumn berries and they droop everywhere!
Wishing you all enough time to finish projects and start new ones. This week in the sewing room, 5 new brides have dropped off their dresses and yes, Kim, there are certainly some howlers and much revealing necklines…OH MY!
