So, for those that are wondering.... Wedding plans are coming together. Invitations are DONE and going in the mail today! Phew, that's a big thing to cross off the list. We visited our venue last week to figure out what to do for decorations. (Pinterest I hate you) My felt flowers are almost finished but I have enough done that I can start assembling my bouquets. Lots of little things to finish now. As my dress, well ... I ordered a 1930s reproduction pattern from the Vintage Pattern Lending Library and put together a mock up. You'll have to visit the website to guess which one I ordered. The pattern was not in my size so I needed to make some adjustments to get it to fit. It's not the one I posted about but it's still a lovely 30s design. In some ways I like this one better and think it's going to look really good made with my lace fabric. I have some vacation time later this week so I plan to do some MAJOR sewing in the next few days. Of course I'll be taking a break on Saturday for my bridal shower. I don't know any details but a little bird tells me it's going to be vintage themed shower. Shocking I know! I can't wait to see what the girls have planned. :)
In the mean time, I've added a few new items to my Etsy shop if you would be so kind to have a look. Cori had to work pretty much the whole holiday weekend so I spent some time cleaning, taking measurements and photos of things to part with. I have a few more dresses to list, two in larger sizes, and one smaller in need of a good soak first. As always, my blog followers can receive a 10% discount with the code BLOGFAN. I don't have international shipping rates listed BUT if you live across the pond and see something you really like send me a message and I will do my best to figure out shipping rates for you.
