Since I had no clue what to do, and I wasn't willing to risk trying to fix the dress myself and mess it up, I called up a lady that my Mom works with from time to time who use to do alterations. She said she thought she could help me out. So one Friday morning, I loaded up my precious dress and drove to Cleveland to try and get everything situated.
The meeting went great! The lady pinned up the shoulders and hem on the dress then she taught me how to take everything up. We did the shoulders together at her house, then she instructed me on the hem and I went home and did it myself.
Only 34 days until the wedding! I still can't get over the fact that Shelby chose me to be one of her bridesmaids and witness as she pledges her life to the man she loves for forever.
Ok Susan, don't cry. Get a hold of yourself.
On a side note, the Jewish Festival of Lights (also known as Hanukkah) begins Wednesday at sundown and ends on the next Wednesday at sundown. I will be doing something special on my blog during that time so be sure and check back here on Wednesday and tell your friends!
