More like, holding back tears gracefully. Especially if it's the groom at the moment he first sees the bride. That just kills me.
But I'm going to do my friend Amy a solid and not post the pics of her in tears at her recent post-wedding celebration at a castle in Scotland — even though those pics are my favorite and technically she said I could post ANY of the pics in her album. Instead I'll let you see her in the dress I made, using the print she designed using Spoonflower's tool.
Amy accessorized beautifully. How much do you love her brooch by Poppie Jasper, an American living in London?
And the purple shrug made by Amy's new husband's Aunt — love that deep purple color paired with the autumnal hues in the print!
Of course the best accessory is a big smile (and a heart filled with love):
Regular readers may remember that this dress was sewn from Burdastyle.com's Bustier Dress With Draped Detail Pattern, with a skirt drafted by yours truly. I've sewn the bodice several times now, with the aid of Gertie's Bombshell Dress class at Craftsy.com. Though Amy lives in London for now, we managed to do fittings via snail mail and Skype. Somehow it worked out. Look how amazing she and her cute new husband Lewis look!
Congratulations Amy and Lewis!
