Fitted 20 June 2009

The Dress fitting on Thursday went very well. I changed into the dress…

Getting changed
and was excited to try the dress with the shoes. Gotta say- I’m very happy with the shoe decision. They’re from Sofft, and very soft. I really like the padded footbed and soft upper, and I’m hoping they’ll stay on all night without a problem.

As for the dress: the top still fits (with a bra I already own, too), the length is just right with the fabulous shoes, so all it really needed was  a bustle. we tried an American bustle and a French one, and both Sydney, Jennifer and Emily (the alterations lady) agreed: French was the way to go. So, Emily pinned it in place, and Syd  & I will head back next Thursday to try it on and learn how to do the bustle.

And then, we cooed over Paul, who was being a really good sport.

Oooh, you wanted to see fabric?

While I was in Ft. Wayne picking the dress, Janel and I found a great deal on some denim fabric, and I made a bag that the dress can travel in!

Teddy inspects the bag he supervised

I was amazed that it came together in about a day, but I did have lots of supervision and advice from Dawn and help from Teddy.

With plenty of cat scans.

Phone call 13 December 2008

Wednesday, while listening to a message, I recieved a phone call from a lady at a tux shop. She was just calling to tell me that they were having a sale/promotion on tuxes, so now might be a good time to pick them out. When I told her that the suit-wearers were going to wear their own suits, she thought that was a neat idea and wondered how all the planning was going. I replied, “It’d going more smoothly than I imagined it would.”

Then she asked if I’d gotten my dress yet, and I was happy to tell her that the message I was just listening to was the bridal shop telling me that my dress had arrived.

Yay!
