About seven years ago my not-yet-then Mother-in-law began making a dress for me. A long, full, princess dress of fuchsia and black in which I would marry the love of my life. Susan and I designed the dress together beginning with a couple of yards of embroidered organza that I had found at the fabric shop a few months earlier.
I love this dress. I love it so much that I don’t want to let it go. I want to wear it again and again and again, and keep receiving compliments on it. So I’m going to hack the sleeves off, crop the hem, and remake my wedding gown into a funky party dress to wear to my 25th high school reunion. There will be lots and lots of bustle, oh yes indeedy there will!
Join me for my journey?!
