here it is...THE dress! it took 8 1/2 hours of alterations and 2 fittings, but it is done and the bride was sooooo happy! and she looked fantastic in it. i didn't get around to taking a photo of it myself, but this one is from the oscar de la renta website. this one was also a big deal because the client flew in just for the fitting, and the alteration had to be done over the weekend because she was flying back home on monday...that was a little stressful, but it is done and everyone was happy! (and i got a good tip!) apparently, it is the same style dress as jenna bush wore in her wedding, but my bride looked better in it.
