The dress

It is funny how things connect sometimes. That is even one more thing I love with the Internet. That connecting the dots gets somehow easier. How you see stuff you would never know otherwise. This is just a little detail like that but anyway.
Sometimes I read Elsa Billgrens blog. She has a great sense of style and great photo’s. And she loves dresses.
Elsa just did a post about the dresses she regretted NOT buying (follow the link to read it) and – these two dresses where part of it. This is me trying out which one I was gonna get for my wedding.

I know I have been writing about the dress before but the thing is, as you all know, it’s something about your own wedding dress! The dress was perfect. But now I kind of wondering why I didn’t buy the blue one but I guess the other just felt better. And the whole time the idea was to make it shorter since I felt it suited me better. When I was done I just saw the heap of leftover fabric and got the idea to sew a matching dress for Della. Guess it was meant to be –  cause I had just enough material for it!
Nowadays I mostly wear it on stage so it doesn’t feel like a leftover in my closet!

What do you have for wedding dress stories?

    Jag förstår din känsla men du gjorde ett bra val, särskilt fint blev det med det blå bandet runt midjan. Underbar bild! / Sanna

    Ja, den var fin. Men herregud – Dellas!!! Det var den underbaraste lilla barnklänning jag sett i hela mitt liv! Det kan msn inte tro, att det är en “leftovers-klänning” ;-)
    Sen är jag ju en sucker för mamma-barn-matchning, bör väl tilläggas. (Något som för övrigt verkar vara lite tabu nuförtiden. Nu “måste” ju alla vara så jäkla unika!)

    Å Ja! Sååå fint! Underbar bröllopsklänning!! Jag läste också Elsas inlägg o tänkte “undrar var de tog vägen”. Fantastiskt kul att se :)
