I made my wedding dress, and it was a very simple dress, plain white satin with a lace yoke and sleeves, suitable for an older bride. It's size 26. There are no daughters or granddaughters in line waiting for it, and my nieces would probably die before they'd wear their aunt's dress. I still have it. I made my veil; although it looked very nice once I was finished I had used so many shortcuts making it I'm surprised it didn't fall apart the first time I sneezed while wearing it.
