I have the best nieces in the world. They think I am magic and can do anything. In their eyes, maybe I can. But you and I know different! I just do the best I can and try to hide any mistakes which are sure to be there:)
My beautiful niece ordered a wedding dress from China. And as is always a case with a mail order dress, it needed some alteration. You guessed it– Wonder Tracy to the rescue!!
She wanted sleeves, the top drooped a bit, and it was way too low for her comfort. So I pulled the shoulder seams up and stitched them down. Of course I matched the edges while sewing. -Easy! Now it fits great:)
Then we played with sleeve design and decided on this pretty layered idea. I had to cut about 5″ off of the bottom of the dress to make it shorter (that first cut into the dress made me take a few deep breaths! Scary!!). I used the extra fabric for the sleeves.
Here are a few pictures I took of the beautiful bride and happy couple at the Latter-day Saint Gila Valley Temple. She is glowing:)!
