Today, in the pouring rain, I scoured the fabric shops of the Garment District for the perfect shade of bridal tulle. When I finally found success and emerged from the store with my prize, the rain stopped and the sun pushed through the clouds.
I could simply have a custom veil made. Instead, I am undertaking a time consuming project that not only requires know how, ability, and a myriad of supplies, but a boatload of patience.
Because this is my second chance. My mum taught me that when you're given the rare opportunity at a second chance, DO NOT waste it or take it for granted.
So, I have dusted off my sewing shears and pin cushion, sketched out my design, created my pattern and purchased my supplies. With every stitch, snip and crystal placed, I honor her. Not only the practical how-to's that she taught me at a very early age, but the life lessons she instilled, and those things will ensure it will be the most perfect bridal veil ever.
