Of course I said I'd do it :)
Mid-July, I visited Amber with my mom, brought patterns to look at (we combined two), and took measurements. Then I made the dress out of muslin as a test dress. We fitted that late July, also taking measurements for the bridesmaid, flower girl, and her two little boys. Then I went on my honeymoon for a week. Then I got busy!
Basically, I sewed everything (1 man's shirt [best man, Paul's teenage son], 2 boys' shirts, two ties for the men, two bow ties for the boys, 1 bridesmaid dress [also combining two patterns], 1 flower girl dress, and 1 elaborate wedding gown) in about 3 weeks. Good thing I had experience sewing my own wedding a few months before!

I worked like crazy! But I loved it :) I loved replicating Amber's perfect DB dress and making something she loved! I enjoyed making matching dresses and shirts and learning how to sew shirts and ties! The wedding was quaint and beautiful :) I'm so glad I could be apart of it!
