Recently, I had the honor to work on a casual wedding dress for a bride who is also pregnant. At the time of her wedding, she will be 20 weeks pregnant. The dress she chose had no stretch, so we decided to make the waist 2″ wider than her actual waist and add a sash to tie around the waist in case the dress is too big on her. It is hard to guess how much your belly grows when you are pregnant. I remember my belly, got visibly bigger after eating big meals, as opposed to when I first woke up in the morning. The bride and I worked on the bow design together and here is what we came up with. I really enjoy working with customers to make custom pieces since it allows me to explore designs that I don’t think of on my own.
