Another lovely gal came through my door… I DO have the best sewing customers EVER. I made the decision when my husband passed away in 2009, that only THE right people would find themselves to my door.
And one for one, it has been the case. Laurie Anderson is among that group.
Not only is she just a sweetheart, she is a math major, loves teaching math (which was my a major), has had her share of ups & downs in life & has found a high school sweetheart that found himself looking for her after all these years going in different directions.
This gown was perfect for her. It was a bone beige with a slight rose cast to it. Very vintage with a cowl scarf effect on the back. The shoulders were way too big, so I took the dress apart & made them fit her properly.
The skirt — well it had bulges in places there there weren’t supposed to have bulges & this beautiful girl has a great figure. So this meant, dive into the layers of lining & interfacing, find a way to slim out the bulges without hitting beading and upsetting the integrity of the skirt.
It turned out great as you can see. Her wedding day was Saturday, April 16th @ 3:00. This is her sweet fellow in their ring exchange.
Sending love, kisses and best wishes for many happy days in your new phase…
