So I'm going to share some happy but possibly shocking personal news ;). You may not know this about me, but I am actually an unmarried 40-something with three kids. Living in the suburbs in happy non-sin with my gorgeous peeps with nary a piece of paper to be seen. In this day and age who would have thought it was possible?
Anyway, fifteen years in, we are thinking of celebrating the love at the end of this year in the form of a wedding..... and I have been wondering if I should/could make my dress. I saw the cover of Hello May pop up on instagram not long ago with a total stunner of a frock that was made by the bride and I was smitten.
It wouldn't be too formal. I'm not that kind of gal..... but it would involve sewing with fabrics that I don't normally sew with. And there would be fit issues I don't normally have to deal with given the simple shapes I normally sew.
The sentimental part of me thinks - "Of course! How amazing would that be?" The ultimate in slow fashion with sentiment.
The practical part of me thinks - "Hell no! Don't be ridiculous woman."
