I made a reference about my "slight" bride a bit ago. I think I was happy about how this dress was acting. It seemed to be easy on me. Thankfully.
Well, here are a few images of Ginnie on her wedding day. I enjoyed working on this project. It had a lot of lace work, which always gets me in a good mood. I love watching the lace effortlessly make the bodice structured and smooth.
Ginnie was an absolute delight. Talk about a happy attitude. It seems like that describes all of my brides. I am lucky.
The photographer is Jacque Lynn , she also did Abi's photos. It is great to discover new people and see their work. I am looking forward to posting more of her beautiful images in a bit. "In a bit" might mean after the summer season. Once we all come up for air.
Hope you are all in a good place. I have had a wonderful day stitching away. This new dress I am working on is taking me back to the simple pleasure of one fabric. Yep, nothing fussy. Just beautiful silk taffeta. Working with silk is why I am involved in this pursuit. I wouldn't be doing it if I couldn't work with these great textiles. Have you ever listened to the sound of silk taffeta. It is noisy. It is noisy in a perfect way. Listen next time. Now I really do sound crazy.
Wishing you well, M
