My Wedding Dress

My Wedding Dress detail

It’s my wedding anniversary.  On the weekend I dug out my wedding dress and tried it on.  It still fits but only just.

I made this dress.  The fabric is very beautiful; it’s silk with a metallic floral design.  I also made my sister’s dress from a Vogue pattern.


My Wedding Dress 18 years ago

Here I am arriving at the church 18 years ago, with my bridesmaid sister and my dad.


My Wedding Dress 8 years ago

The last time I tried it on was on our ten year anniversary.   Just had a baby -must have been sucking that stomach in!


My Wedding Dress now

Here I am now.  Feeling rather uncomfortable -dress seems to be tighter than I remember.


Anniversary Cheers!

    The dress and its model are still as beautiful now as they were on the ‘red carpet’. Happy Anniversary for the 24th!

      Thanks for your kind comment. I remember feeling “just right” in my dress.
