    I actually know someone who makes her own clothes and her sons clothes - so it would not surprise me that she did this
    But as for me - this is a beautiful idea - but i dont think i could ever do a great job like this

    I have never sewn a day in my life so I wouldn't want to start with a wedding dress! And I feel like it would be a challenge to try on the dress and have to pin it for alterations while wearing it so you'd need someone to help you. This is definitely one of those things best left up to the professionals unless you already have a LOT of experience doing it!

    These are great tips for making a wedding dress. For me, I won't make this attempt as I would worried about making mistakes and ruining the dress. Anyone who makes their own, my hats off to you.

    I could never make my own dress! I can't even sew hahah so it would be a disaster. I would rather have it in the hands of a professional! To anyone who can do something like this, props to them! I also think this would just be an extra added on stress.
