New Shop My Closet & A Little Wedding Update

Thank you all so very much for your wonderful comments on my last couple posts! You are all so sweet. I wish I could reply individually to all your comments but I don't seem to be able to with blogger. Does anyone know how to change that? I still feel like I need some practice when it comes to created a head to toe authentic looking outfit so it's great to hear your kind words and encouragement.

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.
