WOW: Dressed to Impress..Just!

WOW = WIPs On Wednesdays
What a week it's been! Thank you everyone for all those good thoughts you sent my way last week - it was an eleventh hour dash and I got over the finish line ....just. I know your positivity made all the difference. I got a second gust of energy just when I needed it and stitched my last stitch (the inside hanging ribbons) at the stroke of midnight and then my DD beaded until 2.30am. At 3.30 am we were driving to the airport.

This photo was taken at 11.30pm, it was the final fitting and you can see from our faces that we are tired, elated and relieved - all at once. All I kept thinking was, oh dear, it's close!

I can't wait to share more dress details and return to blogging once my feet return to the ground.

What's Your WOW?

  4. WOW! It looks stunning. Burning the midnight oil to get it done, many of us have had close encounters with a deadline. The result always makes it worth it, when we help to make someone's day amazing.

  21. Esther, the dress is breathtaking! I am just amazed by how smooth and perfect that lace lays over the bodice curves. It's as if the lace was MADE curvy instead of flat. She is a beautiful bride, and that is about the most beautiful gown I have ever seen. Congratulations!
