Say Goodbye to the Dress

        Last July, I found my almost perfect dress at Victorian Lace Timeless Bride in Downtown Mobile, Alabama.  The owner ushered us in and allowed us to try on dresses way past the store closing time.  Now it is time to take this deal of a dress and make it my own.  I have a few tricks up my sleeve to make the simple yet classic dress more appropriate to my body type.  As you can see I am five foot three and this dress was worn originally by a much taller bride.  (Hey almost everyone is taller than me.) Also I would never choose a dress with a train and keep it.  

       Therefore, this Saturday I returned to Mobile in order to alter the dress to be perfect for my wedding day.  My changes are so extreme the seamstress took before photographs of the dress as well!  This post is a farewell to this long dress, and express my anticipation to see the final product almost exactly a year after I bought it on July sixteenth.
