circus of dreams

As my sweet Gramma Dorothy pointed out, I haven't posted anything about the wedding dress I made for my friend Halligan.  This is mostly because I didn't take any photos!  I was so good about packing my camera, my battery charger, and the battery in my duffel bag, and then brought the camera--sans battery--to the wedding.  Typical.  So, thank you Kyle Fisher, Afton Waring, Ken Brenner, and Katie Miller for these photos I have swiped from Facebook.  The requests of the bride for the dress were that it be short, poofy, and simple (no lace, no satin).  So I added a little detailing by creating this inverted scallop ruffle, the technique taken from this wonderful book The Art of Manipulating Fabric that I...borrowed from Ginny, semi-permanently...  





Oh, and here are some much better photos on Once Wed.
