"Marie" chose a grass-length hem for her farm wedding. She's going to love moving around freely on her wedding day! We also took up the bodice and re-shaped the hips a little. The skirt of the dress was originally a hot mess. We spent hours pressing it, grooming it, and stabilizing it with stitches. (The before picture is actually after it had already been pressed.) You can now see and appreciate the lace work on the skirt. The patterns of lace are pleasing and the silhouette of the dress is defined.
