For My Mom (Part 1: Process)


I am in the process of making my lovely mom a dress she is going to wear to a wedding. Crossing fingers it turns out beautiful!

 A lot of gathers?

More subtle gathers?

This is where the magic happens!

Emerald green would look so nice against my mom's fair skin :))
