It seems like ages since I posted about the Wedding Dress. I've been spending all my spare time on it and it's coming on nicely. Most of the major construction is done. I did a final fitting yesterday to check it fitted Elaine correctly.

This weekend I've been sewing on buttons, button loops and doing the hem. The under layer was machined but I needed to hand fell stitch the top layer -All 3 metres of it!

It's taken me longer than I thought as there has been a lot of hand stitching. I still need to hem the neck edge. Yep by hand. Three weeks to go until the wedding and this dress will be finished this week.
