41 Days to Go: Vicki G's NDAD Creation

More wedding photos from you guys are coming all weekend long!!  Today's is from Vicki G. in Tigard, OR.

 Marisa - I love following your blog, and you have definitely inspired me to get my creative juices flowing again!  I learned how to sew when I was about 10, and made most of my clothes during high school and then majored in Theater in college, focusing on costumes.  I even designed and made my own wedding dress!  I would advise others NOT to do this, though...just a "little" stress!  However, during the past 20 years, my focus has been my kids, and my business, so to say that my "right brain" has atrophied would be an understatement!  I went looking through my closet when I was prepping to go to my niece's wedding.  I knew that I needed something new, however, my checkbook said otherwise!  I took my inspiration to Goodwill, where I found this…

Thanks for your inspiration! 

You look stunning Vicki!  Lady in red, that's for sure!  I love how this turned out, starting off as a Goodwill find and then morphing into a lovely wedding ensemble.  Way to go!!
