So here it is, the end of the Making Wedding Dress series! I handed the wedding dress to my friend, and she wore it at her wedding after party. I was so thrilled to see her wear my creation… I really enjoy making the wedding dress. It took a long time, but the result was satisfying, and most of all, I learned a lot! There are so many things going into a couture sewing, and I can’t wait to improve this area of my sewing skills in the future. In fact, I just bought a book, titled “Cool Couture” by Kenneth D. King to study more.
If you are interested, check out more photos and her testimonial (in Japanese) here🙂
