The wedding dress adventure continues!

And the wedding dress adventure is moving forward... First fitting happened this week! We're trimming the dress from a size 16 to 8 then we get to work on the fun stuff!

My uber talented crafty peep Karen from Endure Upcycled Designs did an initial stitch job. It fits well in some places, a bit loose in others and definitely tight in spots. So next up? Karen reworks the stitching then we have another fitting then we move on to lowering the neckline and adding some embellishments.

I love the colour - silver with a slight texture. It's gonna look awesome!

Once the necklace has been lowered and the bodice has been fixed up... It'll have some WOW factor!

First fitting - done!

Then we'll discuss the thrift store drape and if we should include it with the dress. Maybe as a shawl. I like the fabric and colour - would go really well with the dress.

I also fell in love with this pendant... I'm thinking of buying it to go with the dress. We're adding stitching to the hem that'll be silver thread swirls. This would fit with the dress perfectly! I found it in the gift store at the Britannia Mine Museum.

The next fitting is hopefully this week. Getting excited about the dress, the wedding, the trip and all the goodness that 2015 has in store for me. And for Roly. Yay!
