Last week I was away at a trade show, so today we'll pick up the making of Amanda's gown from PART 5.
Just the details needed to be added to Amanda's gown now-- the heirloom lace on the straps, around the waist, and on the bottom of the train. Also, I still needed to hem and bustle the gown, and incorporate pink silk ribbon and heirloom pearl beads. It took 19 hours and lots of experimentation. I'm counting Gilmore Girls watched in SEASONS, not episodes! Amanda gave me a lot of room to interpret her vision into the gown that suited her best, and I appreciated that more than she knows. I did email her a few choices as I went if I couldn't decide:
But eventually it was finished and ready for Amanda to try on and take home, ready and waiting for her garden, vintage, country wedding.
And I couldn't wait to see the pictures of it on her... but I had to... just like you ;)
