You sew?!?!?

Julie said...

ha! that seems so funny because when I was about 14 or 15 I basically started making all of my clothes! I guess you weren't around then. I sewed until I got married. I thought sure when I had a baby girl I would make all of her clothes. Never realizing I wouldn't have time! So, that is the story--yes I used to sew and had fun making things look "not homemade"!

You're a good seamstress! I don't think I would have the patience to make one of those, much less four! What did it have, about 22 yards of lace at the bottom? I was matron of honor for my cousin's wedding and she had very similar bridesmaids dresses. I think there was that much lace on my dress alone. Whew! Luckily, my mom made the dress. My sewing skills ended with the last home ec class I took in high school. :)

So happy you posted these! Love the heart thingies your bridesmaids were carrying! (Ha. Evil snicker. :-) Do you, by any chance, use them in your current decor?

Ha! And my mom made me sit through your wedding with my eye swollen shut and face all oozy with poison ivy. Sorry to say, I don't have pleasant memories of that happy day and I'm still bitter at my mom! ;)

I will say, though, that everything was very pretty from the one eye I could see out of!

Martha---lol! NO! Do Not use that in my decor! Funny thing is I also made lace heart thingys for the windows and that is what I gave to the bridesmaids as their gift! Ha! I made practically everything even my garter! My how my taste has changed!!! Thank goodness! It does give a good laugh though!

Carrie,
so sorry you have such bad memories of my wedding! Janae is just like you in that when she has poison ivy on her face anywhere at all she thinks she must not go out in public!!! hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me for getting married on the same day you had poison ivy all over your face! ha
