Here's Dana with her lovely mom, Betty. A couple of stunners, no? I finished Dana's custom wedding gown today: ivory silk crepe with cap sleeves and a bias flounced skirt. It suits her beautifully and I can't wait to see photos of her wedding day. Dana's a hard-working woman and she had completely lost her voice when she came for her final fitting today. Betty stepped in as interpreter, but I let myself imagine that Dana was just speechless with delight. I worked up a special floral corsage for the shoulder of her dress:
It's a mix of silk organza flowers, ostrich feathers, lace, velvet leaves, vintage brooches, pearls, and 1920s glass and gilt buttons.
