(Saturday before the wedding)
Amy calls me "Sher, I have a job for your daughter, I need her to hand out the programs at the wedding" she continues "since I know she will wear something super cute and fun... and I know she will wear some of her jewelry"
Me.."No Problem she will be happy to be party of your special day"
what I am really thinking...(oh s_ _ t. I don't know what I am putting her in I have not had time to make anything!!)
me.. to Amy "Is bright colors ok"
Amy who is usally game for anything"The brighter the better she is a little girl"
(Aha/Light bulb moment)..So the time is come... Last year I commissioned Lori at MissRubySue to make a headband for my daughter. My only request to Lori was hot pink, orange, and aqua. I wanted to design a dress for my girl based on the headband.
( Next it is Wednesday Night) Picture me scrambling not one but 2 fabric stores to get the perfect fabric..
(Me having flashbacks to my teens) My mother was Right I do wait to till the last minute..as she is yelling at me while I was sewing my dress as I walk out the door to the prom
(Friday morning) Doing final fitting and putting in zipper...then sewing the lining in the car on the trip to the wedding location...(my subconscious ...see your mother was right)
(Saturday afternoon) So this is it... Hot Pink cotton sateen, Orange Taffeta,and Aqua peti-skirt with 4 layers of tulle trimmed in orange ribbon with a peekaboo of orange micro tulle.
The dress was business on the outside and Party Underneath.. You would think she was getting Married....it is her cousin
