Jamaica 2022

Is this thing on? I haven't blogged in years. I switched to social media along with most of the world until I realized what a horrible and toxic place it is, so now I'm returning to blogging because I feel like I have more control with this medium and I'm really documenting it more for myself.

This is my Mother-of-the-bride dress and I'm very pleased with the way it came out. I used Simplicity 8648 for the duster and Simplicity 3503 for the maxi dress. I've made both of these before so I thought it would make for a smooth process. 

In the middle of constructing the duster my serger decided not to cooperate so I purchased a gently used Babylock Vibrant serger so I could finish. The lacy fabric was terrible to work with and I auditioned several seam finishes but settled on the serger because it added stability to the fabric. 

As you can see in the end it all came together beautifully. Now just to get through all of the travel restrictions and make it to Jamaica. My daughter's original wedding date was June 20, 2020 so I'm praying that everything works out and it goes off without a hitch.

I will most like post most of the pictures from the wedding here and just a few on the gram.
