Today I finished everything on the dress except for the hems.

The neckline was easy. Nice and neat.

Clean finishing the armholes using the old “sausage technique”…


OMG, I’m in a tight spot!


Gently, gently… the trick is to pull the entire dress through a tube 3″ in circumference without tearing the fragile silk. (Actually, the real trick is to pull the skirt through first and then the bodice.)

Now it is hanging up all ready for the final fitting and hem-cutting tomorrow.

Of course I couldn’t resist trying it on, though this dress is created for a womanly goddess body and not skinny little me. I want to see what it looks like on K – mostly I just want it to fit.

    5. Danielle, it’s gorgeous! I can’t wait to see how it looks on the bride and best of all, she’ll probably be able to wear it again.
