Wedding Plans . . . . check

How's everyone doing? So sorry I've disappeared lately. I'm out of town, still. The weather has been pretty bad this week and I've just had to cancel my first Oakland farmer's market. I'm completely unprepared anyway. I really want to do a post about the 3 fabric shops I visited last week, but I just don't have the energy.

Tomorrow I'll be driving home from Oakhurst. I was able to get quite a few of my wedding plans taken care of on this trip so I'm really happy. I think I even found a photographer. Hooray! I tried the yummy pasta I've ordered for the reception and got to iron out some details with the caterer. I think most of what I have left to do invlolves sewing. I suppose it's a good time of year for me to be working on this stuff, I'm going to have to neglect my business a little till the summer.
The best news of all is that after searching through 78 pages of sewing patterns on Etsy last night, I found my wedding dress pattern. I'm so thrilled. It's just the shape I've been looking for and it's even the right size! I'll be making the one in the lower right corner. I plan to change it a lot, but the basic style is perfect. Isn't it great that I got it on Etsy too? Awesome. Now for the fabric.

Ack! Wedding plans! No matter how many times I said the planning wasn't that bad, some days it really was a bit much. The dress has a beautiful shape. Are you going to make a muslin copy first? Make sure you document this!
