Sally’s Photo Shoot and Final Fitting

Sally's Photo Shoot and Final Fitting by Brooks Ann Camper Bridal Couture

HOORAY!!!

After months of sewing and scheming, Sally’s custom wedding dress was finally finished and looking like the sketch. It was time for the photo shoot and final fitting!

Even though these events happened on different days, I decided to make this post a full-fledged photo-fest sharing staged shots of the dress on the form and casual shots of Sally’s final fitting.

The Photo Shoot

With the help of my handsome husband Charles, I turned my dressmaking studio into a photography studio for a day!

Sally’s Final Fitting and Delivery Day

Guess what? Sally loved it!

I made a single adjustment to the length of the waist stay but otherwise, the fit was perfect. Sally looked absolutely gorgeous!

It was a little sad to file all the paperwork, pack up the patterns, and to say goodbye to Sally and her dress, but…

…I’d see them both again soon because Charles and I were invited to the wedding!

I can’t wait to share wedding day photos in the next post. I’m getting a little teary-eyed just thinking about it…
