a special dress for a special lady

makin' a dress

A few months ago, my friend Kate asked me a huge favor - to design & make her wedding dress.

I've often thought about my own future wedding dress - would I make it? Possibly, but I'd worry about the stress. I'd worry it would be too complicated for me to execute or that I would make a mistake. 

So when Kate asked me to make her dress, these same thoughts ran through my head. I said "yes," though, because she is planning a relaxed, simple wedding. I knew I could confidently make a simple, pretty dress with a few special details.

Kate and I collaborated on the design, shopped for fabric together, and I did the actual construction. I can't wait to show you the finished product after her wedding in June!

...until then, enjoy these in-process photos.
