Finally, the DIY Wedding Dress photoshoot....

I got the photos for the DIY Wedding Dress photoshoot! It was a very sunny day and the entire shoot took about 30 minutes. The bottom of dress and train got really dirty because I was dragging it in the parking lot, on the sidewalk, on the road, on the grass, up the stairs, etc. Good thing it didn't wrinkle much because of my fashion fabric and lining choices. At the end of the shoot, I ended up tearing a big hole in my DIY veil with my newly thrifted heels!  :-(

Ultimately it was a fun experience. It was just so satisfying to be able to wear all my DIY stuff for the photoshoot: the veil, the jewelry, the dress. My friends did a great job with the photos. I think we have to 'create' some celebrations for ourselves from time to time for fun, right? So here is one of my favourite photo:

Now that I have 'checked off' another sewing milestone (i.e. making a wedding dress), what other sewing projects should I  I strive for? I have already made shirts/blouses, pants, shorts, jeans, underpants, dresses, jackets, cardigans, skirts, swimwear, coats, maternity wear, pyjamas, baby/kids clothes, menswear (coats, shorts, pants, pyjamas), bags/purses, hair accessories, jewelry, curtains, cushions, table covers, headboards, soft toys. Any suggestions on what I should try next?


  1. Your dress looks amazing! I made my own cake but I wasn't brave enough to make my own dress too. How about a quilt next?

    1. Thanks Linda! I wish I can bake! My hubby is the cake maker in our house. I have made a few baby quilts for my kids when they were born. They are getting to be too small now. Perhaps I should make a couple of bigger ones for them with all the scraps in my scraps box?
