Oh, That Dress!

Another Miracle Worker for Daughter #2's wedding...our seamstress. She is a wonderful, sweet woman who lives in Garden Grove, with amazing talent. She can take a wedding gown picture and make a dress...even without a pattern! Her work was amazing!

Daughter #2 couldn't find just the right dress. She found pictures from wedding magazines of dresses she liked, but not one with exactly the right look. One day, while working on the set of a Cartoon Network show (before the strike, of course!) a friend of my daughter's, who is a graduate of the Fashion Institute , and a fellow actor, took a look at my daughter's ideas and created a rendition of the dress. He was right on! It was beautiful!
So with this drawing, and an adventurous trip to the fabric district in Los Angeles, our seamstress was able to create The Dress.
You can't see them, but underneath, my daughter is wearing white Converse Chuck Taylor shoes that she decorated with leftover lace from the dress. They were so cute!

Isn't this dress beautiful? Our seamstress is amazing!
