The Purple Wedding Dress - It Begins!

So after much planning and thinking and sketching and deciding between fabrics and muslin-making, I'm finally at the cutting point for the actual dress! I'm making a vintage inspired silvery purple silk wedding dress for my friend, and I'm so excited about it!

This is always the scary part, though, cutting into that gorgeous silk. Once you cut, you just can't go back. But that was my task today, measure 3 or 4 times and CUT! I'm looking forward to making this silk fabric sandwich, as I mentioned in my instagram earlier today.

I'm sure many of my daily sews over the next couple weeks will be concerning this dress, I can't wait to start piecing it together!
