7 days to go!
Well it's now 7 days until the big day... Do I feel ready? Well no, but at least the dress is finished! Or I can pass it off as finished (it still needs a clasp for the back underskirt), can anyone say....safety pin?! I have finally finished the shrug, which I had planned all along on staying true to the pattern "Lacy Hug-Me-Tight" shrug from the book Knit 2 Together by Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark. But alas, I couldn't resist the urge to change something about it, so after starting the lacy border I decided that I did not want to attach it afterwards (this concept goes back to the skirt and how I started it over after deciding I did not want to seam lace, or purl...), instead I picked up a numerous amount of stitches and used the pattern I used for the skirt. This worked well, and I think it will match better then a whole new lace pattern.
I have also been fretting about shoes.... all summer.... So to appease my feet and to finish off this outfit I went two doors down to Center Stage and bought a very comfortable pair of light beige sandals that work out perfectly! I have a mohair/silk very airy veil started, but I'm not sure if I will finish it or decide against it. What do you all think?
