This weekend, my assistant Shirley's only son is getting married! Shirley asked me to make her Mother of the Groom dress for her. She chose Butterick 5490 and a turquoise crepe backed satin for the dress.
Shirley had been working out and watching her weight for a year, and lost 55 pounds before I made the dress. I think she looks fantastic!
I also made her a matching lace bolero in case it gets chilly. It is an outdoor wedding at 5:30 pm near Chicago, so I bet she'll be wearing the bolero too!
