We celebrated our first wedding anniversary this weekend.
Upon my engagement, my mom and I discussed the possibility of just buying her a Mother of the Bride dress in light of all the sewing I had to get done during my fairly short engagement. However, after a fair bit of contemplation I just couldn't imagine my mom wearing anything other than a dress I made for her on my wedding day. So I told my mom I would love to make her dress and assured her I would have time for the project and it wouldn't stress me out too much.
She took me up on my offer and proceeded to look online for design inspiration. Soon she had decided on two things.
1: She wanted the dress to be silk, as she had thoroughly enjoyed having a silk dress for my brother's wedding a couple years earlier.2: She wanted to use a piece of lace off her wedding dress on her Mother-of-the-Bride dress. We had already decided I would use some of the lace from her dress on my gown, and we both thought it would be really sweet to do the same with her dress.
