Adding "You" to a wedding dress .client.

Recently I reconnected with a friend of mine from high school, Ashley. After a very long afternoon of stories and laughs we decided this go around we would stay in touch.

A few weeks after we got together she texted me asking if I would be interested in some work for a dear friend of her's.

Well sure.... I always love new projects...

Meet Christin, she is just about the cutest thing ever... and did I mention I love her sense of humor??
She is great....

After talking to Christin she was wanting me to make the table cloth for her Wedding cake and make some sashes for her bistro tables for the reception...

I had a blase making these things for her and can't wait to see pictures of the reception!! I do have some pics i took with the iphone but i know good and well, JMalahy Photography will get some great shots in a few weeks and I will post what he shoots later..

Now, on to that wedding dress....

Christin and I spoke after we finished the table cloth and she showed me the "inspiration" picture of her wedding dress.

She found a divine dress but it didn't happen to have the flowers on the hip like she was wanting.

That's where I had to put my head to the grinding stone and figure out how to make some rosettes.

Last weekend mom and I went to Nashville to see some of her dear friends and they graciously showed me how to make them.

Here is what we came up with...
now... just on the off chance her prince charming makes his way over to my blog... I am not posting the whole dress. We will have to wait and see Christin in it on the BIG DAY.

Had so much fun learning new techniques and figuring out how to create these beutiful rosettes.

Did I mention Christin and JR are famous??
