I recently agreed to make a wedding dress for Julia's sister-in-law, Michelle. I told her I could do it if the dress of her dreams was fairly simple. She said "keep it simple" was her goal, so we headed out to look at patterns.
She chose this one: Butterick B5419
I had spent 4 or 5 hours working on the skirt during the week before. After 10 hours of sewing on Saturday, the top is finished, too! I'll post a picture of the bride after her wedding on November 8.
