Well, she's done. And I am so happy!!! It is so fluffy and ruffly and girly!! In the words of Agnes of "Despicable Me"...."It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!!!!"
I can honestly say, this is the most involved, expensive, complicated, time-consuming, satisfying project I have ever subjected myself to and I am so happy, truly thrilled it's complete! All that is left is to iron all the underwear, pack up the wedding artifacts, write a few things out, visit with my fabulous Mother-in-law, Pam (who is almost here) and take it easy!!!
If you didn't see my earlier post, pop on over and take a look see, you will witness me having an utter cow over my silk getting here. Before today, the ruffly fluffiness was very incomplete...like only 25% was done, so it was with sheer, giddy delight (and some screaming for the whole neighborhood to hear) that the package was happily lying in my mail box this afternoon!
So, without further ado...I am pleased to introduce my 1898 Wedding ensemble to you!!
