Update: Well i'm thinking of going 5 more inches and then starting the border! The finish line is in sight! I don't want the knitted lace to be too close to the ground since it will be an outdoor wedding... in a hay field! I'm pretty proud of myself for doing 1.5" yesterday! Its getting there!
Also, i had a very exciting interview with a woman who writes for a CA wedding guide website called herecomestheguide.com a while ago, and a couple days ago my dress was posted as a blog post on their website! Here is a link to the blog post! Very exciting!
