It took over 600 yards of 6" wide tulles...all ruffled. I can't believe it either but it's true. My large sewing table was overtaken by tulles...and that's just the skirt part of the gown. Somewhere in all those fluff is the sewing machine. It became clear early on that this was going to be challenging...not because of the weight, which is really light but rather twisting, turning, feeding the material through the sewing machine while balancing all that fluffiness. I was, literally, drowning in tulle. Good thing no one was there to take a photo...well, except for the four men working outside on our backyard makeover.
There are only 7 days left to complete, what I started calling, "Operation Parfait". Why? 'Cause this dress is going to look light, airy, dreamy and sweet!
