I’ve been MIA for a bit. As you may recall, I have been juggling drama at work, a newly diagnosed diabetic dog, a son’s wedding and a house guest here from Germany for the wedding. Work is still drama and likely will be for the rest of the year (sigh), the dog is still diabetic but we are starting to get used to it, the wedding is over and the happy couple is on their honeymoon and the house guest is back home in Germany. It is time for me to try and get settled into my routines for my new normal. That means I should try and put out a post or two a week here.
For the wedding I made my own dress. Nothing difficult. A tube with sleeves really. I took a sleeveless dress I have that I find comfortable and relatively flattering and used it as a pattern (only I added sleeves).
I don’t have any good pictures yet because I vowed that for the wedding, I wouldn’t take any pictures. I would just be there “in the moment.” Once I have a good photo I will share. For now, you will have to settle for a blurry selfie with my eyes closed.
Sure, I would have felt prettier in a super fitted dress with all kinds of support systems in place (like a corset) but the day turned out to be brutally hot for an out door wedding and I was frankly happy I was wearing a loosey goosey gown. Father of the bride was smart and brought three shirts and a pair of shorts to change into as he sweated his way through everything! My hubby had to drive and hour and a half round trip, home to change!
There is a long weekend coming up and I have no real plans so hopefully my next post will be another completed project or at the very least, more Victorian in nature!
