: Celebrate! My mother of the bride dress is finished. It's mint green lace and shantung, made out of tablecloths that my friend Susan made for HER daughter's wedding. She passed them on to me, and oh, well, when you are operating with very limited funds you make do! I used the shantung wrong side out for a tea-length, yolked skirt. The top is lace with the scalloped edge used as the hem. It looks just super, very elegant. We're not going to have tablecloths nearly as as fine as my dress, the tablecloths that were.

I finished it today despite an inordinate waste of time doing hurryupandwait at the hospital, getting lab work and EKG scans and being told to not eat anything after midnight.

Next I will cut into the wedding gown. There are two scary things about it (besides the price of the yardage). a) I have to seriously alter the bodice, and b) it has a waistline that drops down into a V in front and back. Waistlines like this are hard to make nicely.
