But let's get on with some hard core recaps now, shall we?
My amazing, seamstress, Janet Brunton (that's her in the pic above), did a phenomenal job of hemming my gown and adding the bustles for my sister (MOH J) to handle it mostly alone on the wedding day. She even used colored bows and tacks to help MOH J to know which little ribbon/tie went with which little hook (blue ribbon to blue hook, red ribbon to red hook). MOH J got real good at it in about 3 different fittings. She could handle it on her own even though we had cousin A (a fellow Bridesmaid) help her out on the last time just to have a helping hand. But see, on the day of the wedding, when it came time to do the bustling...yeah, it didn't work out that way.
