You may recall a shower curtain purchase made several months ago. Using the skirt from Vogue 1174 and the bodice from Simplicity 2693
I created this:
complete with POCKETS & fun details like lace on the lining:
All would have been great except for the zipper splitting minutes before the ceremony started showing my exposed back and undergarments to select guests. I spent a few panic-stricken minutes crammed in a bathroom stall, with my dress half-on, wrestling with the zipper wondering in vain a) how on earth I was going to get out of the restoom and to my car while showing the least amount of skin and b) whether it was possible to get a new dress without missing the ceremony or reception. Despite all, my mad-zipper skillz saved the day and I made it to the ceremony in time.
Crisis averted! (phew!)
In the end, it was the perfect dress to spend a warm October evening with great friends
AND a beautiful bride
Congratulations Katie and Jake!
