|I realize what I'm in for.|
"So, if anyone has any advice, tips, sources and resources, stimulants, sedatives or liquor, please share!"
At that time I was sort of kidding. Now I'm serious. I will definitely need stimulants, sedatives or liquor.
The wedding gown selection offered by the Big Four is poor – very poor. But Neue Mode had a large selection of formal gowns and wedding gowns and Lindsey chose two patterns she wants merged into her gown. Both designs are simple and I felt reasonably confident about the process. After all, I have a 50% off coupon I intend to use on a whole bolt of muslin. But, I have absolutely no experience with Neue Mode pattens and I panicked when the patterns I ordered arrived without instructions. I was afraid Neue Mode was like Marfy and I'd have to make a wedding gown with no instructions. I raced to the website and found out I could download and print the instructions. First crisis averted.
So, the Wedding Dress Adventure began momentously. I have major design changes using a pattern company I have never, ever used before. Ever. The store that had the lace I loved burned and will probably not reopen. It's a good thing I have a whole year for this project. Looks like I'm going to need it.
