Just as day one was cut short due to a colour change in our lining, day two’s dress making endeavour finished because we felt the lace was too white. On the up side, you all get to see a riveting post regarding my experience with dying fabric in tea!
The back is gorgeous, hey? After a significant amount of tugging, pinning, and cutting, we got it to sit perfectly. And when I say perfect, I really mean it. Just don’t slouch (as you shouldn’t on your wedding day!).
To ensure both sides would be even, we had to use the lace my mum shaped as a pattern for the other side’s lace. This was more challenging than I thought it would be, as they looked like one piece when they’re on top of each other! I was so paranoid that I would accidentally cut both at the same time, hahaha. Needless to say, I let out a big sigh of relief when the cutting was finished.
Stay tuned for my post about fabric dying!
