Wedding dress circa 1984

This is the dress my mom made for her humble wedding, back in 1984. Isn't it adorable?

Not to mention how adorable and shy my mom looks in the dress as well. I can just imagine all the love and tenderness she put into making it, and how careful she must have been in cutting the silk.. I should mention that while my mom is great at sewing, she also designs her own patterns as well, including this one! I can't imagine cutting into a piece of delicate material without written instructions to follow afterwards. This lady clearly amazes me.

It wouldn't surprise me if my gran (sitting on the right) made her own outfit as well. I think I can thank my maternal side of the family for all things lovely, and my crafty genes.

Thanks, mom!
