Here Comes The Bride

Here Comes the Bride.
I first met Lisa in January this year, she was booking on a Garment Making Class whilst on Maternity Leave.
Instantly likeable and absolutely gorgeous, we hit it off straight away.
Lisa had been on a short sewing course elsewhere before, and is a natural sewist.
She told me about her wedding plans, I’m not sure how we got onto her making her own dress or who’s idea it was, but we were both up for the challenge.
Lisa had tried a couple of dresses on, but either didn’t feel comfortable or wasn’t really her. Making a dress wasn’t about saving money ( although I’m sure she did) It was all about making something that fit great and would be comfortable on the most special day whilst looking after 2 little boys as well.

An so were off Pattern cut and altered, Fabric bought and cut. Its really happening.

With 1 week to go Lisa calls, she still needs to add the finishing touches and get her dress cleaned #HorizontalBride

I think you’ll agree, that Lisa Looked amazing on her Wedding Day and did a wonderful job of her dress.
Many Congratulations Lisa, Steven, Ollie and Henry. xx
