    So as some of you may know, I am having my dress made by my most wonderful Aunt! I'm am SO happy to have something custom made just for me. Being a plus-size gal, sometimes it's not easy finding things.

    Anyway, I thought that it might be fun/interesting to post the progress of my dress. We went a couple of weeks ago to buy the material for the dress. Last friday, I had my first fitting. Now let me remind you that the dress may just look like a sack of potatoes right now! lol This fitting was to put the dress on and have it pinned to my actual size. It was so exciting to have this done for me. I have never had anything custom made for me before, especially by someone so special to me.

    Here's the pics! Please let me know if they are too big or whatever! Thanks!

    I can't stress enough how freakin' exciting this is!!

    I'm going for my second fitting tomorrow, so the pinning that was done last week will all be sewn (sp??) to the proper fit. I'll post some pics afterwards!

    Enjoy ladies! Feel free to post any comments or questions! :)

          really cool, and it's so special that it's being made for you by a family member. my sister made my veil (which is no biggie compared to a whole dress), and i just loved her for it SO much!

          i like the bones of it so far ... sweetheart neckline and corset back? very nice! can't wait to see it as it progresses! do you have pics of what you'd like the final version to look like?

            I sure do! Our inspiration was this Maggie Sottero dress

            Harlow - by Maggie Sottero

            Obviously it'll look different, but that's the look I was going for!

                    Wow, how lucky are you to have an aunt who is custom making your dress. It will be great to follow the progress. Can't wait to see the finished product! The inspiration dress is beautiful.
