Making my wedding dress was wonderful. I learned so much, and got to craft a dress I adored and loved wearing to marry my wonderful man. It's also, hands down, the best garment I've ever made! It was such an in-depth project, and took me more hours than I'd care to count, but it was all worth it.

  2. Wow! Your dress is great! I sewn wedding dress for my sister, but it was easier than yours. Now, I would like to sew my wedding dress with corset and your posts make me a little braver. Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much! I have just had a look at the dress you sewed, it is beautiful! I would say go for it with the corset, it's not as hard as it sounds! Good luck!
