>And They Lived Happily Ever After…

>This past Saturday one of my very best friends got married!  Introducing Mr and Mrs Randy Hude!

You might recognize Addi as the beautiful model on the cover of the Bathing Beauty Swimsuit pattern, and shortly before she was engaged she was the bride at the fashion show I did last year.
She is a stunning classic beauty and her wedding had all the charm, uniqueness, and creativity you would expect from her- she is a sculptor, painter, and artist!

 Addi is a huge Phantom of the Opera fan, so for getting ready for her wedding what would be better than Christine’s dressing gown? She draped and sewed this gown for herself based on the dressing gown from the Broadway musical.

 I made her wedding gown and bolero for her based on a dress worn by the Andrews sisters in the movie Moonlight and Cactus.  We took our own take on it and made it from white silk taffeta with an outer layer of chiffon and wing “sleeves” appliqued with lace. As a rule I don’t do custom sewing but for Addi I made an exception.  This was the last of my custom sewing creations.

Addi’s going away outfit was a beautiful vintage suit with a matching jacket made in charcoal gray wool with bronze satin accents.  I love her matching shoes and the darling train case she carried with vintage luggage stickers decorating it!  Don’t they make a darling couple? And now off to relax in Hawaii and start their new lives together.
I  thought you’d all enjoy pictures of Addi- isn’t she a beautiful and stylish vintage bride?

    >I'm so happy for them — she is just the sweetest person and she looked so lovely and happy on her wedding day!

  3. >One thing I can't grasp is why in English language when a woman marries not only she loses her surname but also becomes Mrs XY. As though she never existed herself. But that's another issue, because your friend seems so happy. Congrat!

  4. >how wonderful! that's one stylish bride! The dress you made is breath-taking!
