Whew. busy me.
Came to Birmingham to work on wedding stuff.
Well. I was going to have the flower girl dresses made by this sweet, sweet lady that makes french hand sewn dresses.
She looked at me and said "Kendall, you've been sewing since you were nine years old. Why in the world are you going to pay me to sew these for you?"
So, had to pile one more thing on to my list.
But, I'm happy to say they are made!
Along with some really beautiful ivory wool capes.
WISH I could show them to you, but I can't spoil the surprise!
Flower girls are kind of hard in my opinion.
But, I grew up with a snob of a mother (and I say that in the kindest of ways) who instilled in me the essence of understated elegance.
And, never, ever, ever use cheap stuff to make a handmade dress. Ever. Or anything handmade for that matter.
So, the dresses are beautifully made with some of my mom's lace that she brought back when we visited France 8 years ago. The capes are made from ivory wool and cashmere. The bows are beautiful 4" satin Japanese ribbon.
OH how I wish you could see them.
Now, what to do with the hair and what the little girls will carry.
I've compiled a huge grouping of pinterest pics.
I love, love, love this...
do you know that this picture on my pinterest board has gotten 546 pins?
goodness. LOVE the hair.
I really love this balloon idea
The dress on the left will be Evey's rehearsal dinner dress.
