Design and Construction

This is just a quick look at what we did when the project officially started.
I've included a bit of my design process, an image of the ill fated first fabric, our lovely replacement fabric, a peak at the trims I wanted to choose from, and an idea of what the dress will look like finished.
This has been quite a long an arduous process, but an incredible learning experience.
I managed to do one other thing while I have been immersed in this, which was reading the new Harry Potter.
I also found the support of my friends was amazing.
The real reason this project is a miracle? Please see other pages. I hope my story inspires you to follow your dreams no matter what seems to be against you.
