Saturdays than which few are more fun: those spent trying on wedding dresses.  I’m thinking about making the dress myself, but maybe that’s crazy…?  It’s a high pressure kind of project and I’d need a lot of space.   And time.  And to learn about corsetry and boning perhaps?

Did any of you sew your own wedding dress, or plan to?  I’d love to hear your stories, and of course to know what you think this one would look like, in ivory, with a circle skirt instead of a gathered one.  I’d like to wear a light and fun dress rather than a Designer Gown of Shimmering Status Symbolness.   I want it to be mine, if you can see what I’m trying to say here.  Ideas and advice much appreciated.
