I have known this family for years and even made Ashley's Prom Dress (got those photos somewhere, in an older blog)....So when she announced I she chose me to make her Wedding dress, she did so in Social Network style, by posting a red jacket that I made her Grandmother Lois. I was so honored especially since, this young lady is such a fashionista. I was also to make Dawn (the brides Mother) and Lois (the Grandmother), dresses as well. The making of Ashley's Dress and then that beautiful day in August, photos by The Art Hype. Beaded Bridal Pillow Dawn (Mother of the Bride) with a linen dress with lace and beading. She said people kept trying to touch...
