The Making of a Wedding Gown

Not just any gown, my gown! When I decided to take on the task of designing and making my own gown (and my maid-of-honor! I know, crazy!) I wanted to document it in a way that I would remember and clients could witness the feat that it was. This is by no means a “how-to”...
