My niece, Dana, was getting married and wanted a fairly unconventional wedding dress.  She wanted black and fuchsia, which pretty much doesn’t exists in bridal gowns, so she asked me to make it for her.  I was honored.

One of the main difficuties was that we did not live near each other, so I had to make test dresses and mail to her until we got the fit right, then I could make the real thing.

The pattern I used was Vogue V2842.

This is the final dress, she looked amazing in it.
