and I have two days left.
two days until the wedding.
two days left to stare at it, questioning it, analyzing it.
unless I put the garment bag over the dress so that I can't see it anymore.
but I just don't want to do that yet.
I want to look at my work and admire it just a little more, because once I slip it on, on this lovely Sunday, I won't be able to see the back that I worked so hard on. but let me tell you, all those luscious layers of silk feel very nice rustling around me. And even though I got distracted and didn't work out like I wanted to or felt like I should, I lost four pounds and the dress feels absolutely fantastic. lovely and amazing fantastic.
nine hours of pintucking.
and at least 24 hours of hand stitching layers and layers of silk chiffon.
and countless hours of contemplating and sorting in my head.
and it's done.
it's done it's done it's done!
