Barn or cathedral, you are going to shine.
It's just fabric. We can out-think it.

My mum has arrived, and I finally got my dress fitting! It just needs some slight adjustments on the shoulder, but I'm really happy with the fit. Once the shoulders are done, I just need to sew hooks and eyes for the train and work out how best to attach the pearls.

I'll get proper photos once it's finished, but in the meantime, here is the back with the train pinned on.

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.
