Dress For A Special Day

Special Dress for a Special Day!

I had the honor of making a dress for my friend, Delilah's 20 Year Wedding Vow Renewal!


She presented me with a photo of a similar dress and we collaborated on bringing her vision to life!

It was wonderful working with her! She did a total of 4 fittings - one of which was a muslin fitting - all in the midst of her commutes to and from Hawaii. Each time she saw the dress, she had a huge smile of her face.  It always makes my heart glad when I see the smiles on the faces of those I sew for!


As she was leaving her 2nd fitting, she touched the dress and prayed over it and a 2nd dress that I was working on for her.  I didn't hear all of the words of her prayer, but it touched me.
I pray about most of the work that I do, but to know that someone else prayed, touched me deeply.


The dress is a stretch lace with a satin lining.  As we all know, most knits are challenging to work with, so I used a ton of weights. Using weights to keep the fabric in place is so much better than pins that would have just gotten lost in the lace.

I also used tissue paper on my cutting table to prevent the lace from shifting while rotary cutting (I rarely cut any lace with scissors - unless I'm doing appliques).




Don't they make a beautiful couple! 💕



The lace moved beautifully!


Can you tell she was quite happy with her dress!  😃
