Semi-DIY wedding — Short = Awesome

It looks like I wont be doing real sewing for a while, so bear with me while I rant about my wedding (do I sound slightly bridezilla? Im practicing 🙂 ).  I am finally done with altering my dress! I took off a whole 2 inches off this petite wedding gown, and now it just touched the floor a tiny bit when I am on my heels. I also took out lots of room around the hips — I always thought I have a decent-sized butt, but apparently the normal butt’s even bigger!

Anyway, I had a long strip of fabric cut from the dress hemming, so I made shoulder strap (my fiancee  LOVES spaghetti straps and he was slightly sad when I told him my dress is strapeless)  and fabric-covered buttons from it and attached it to the dress. Isn’t it AWESOME being short? You get all these extra fabric to play with! I also did a three-point dress bustle using sewn-on snaps (shown on photo below)  for the train so that I can dance in it! It was great having  a dress-form to hang the dress in while I worked the tuck and buttons — I felt like a designer!

Now I can look so very beautiful on my wedding day:

  1. LOL @ the “bridezilla” figurine! 😛 I think your dress will be so beautiful, can’t wait to see pictures of it! 🙂

    1. OK, obviously my brain hasn’t had enough caffeine yet–I meant to say “I can’t wait to see pictures of you wearing it!”
