Hi all! A big welcome to new Sarah's Clothespress visitors. I am Sarah, Kelly's friend and maid of honor. I am sewing her wedding dress and the dresses for the other bride's maid (Kelly's sister) and myself. I am posting pictures of the dresses as I complete them, so that Kelly's friends and relations have a chance to see them. (also, a few of my curious friends will come look too). Enjoy!

- Notes: pattern is no longer published



Kelly's new wedding dress! Except for a few small details, it is completely done, as of March 19th, 2008!

Here is a detail of the bodice, showing the lace overlay and small rosette, as well as the band added as an off-the-shoulder sort of sleeve.

This gown is modeled after a picture I saw of the "Biedermeier" time period, an epoch in German history pretty much synonymous with the Regency period in England.

Childhood attempts

At age seven, I decided to run away to sea


At age ten I tried to join the Merry Men and got sidetracked by malevolent elves.


At age 15 I joined Robert of Locksley and his band of Merry Men
