Wedding Wednesday: Tutorial roundup

A little wedding stitching

Well, my goal to give you a new free wedding-themed pattern each month was challenged by the actual wedding process. :)

Up above is a small wedding project I fit in - a simple ribbon belt, made (with some alterations) from this Martha Stewart Weddings tutorial.

I made my belt smaller, using 5/8 inch ivory ribbon, so I also made my loops daintier and smaller. I may try another in a thicker ribbon, once I get my dress - which currently is - too small! Ack! I had it taken in and it was taken in too much. Breathing is important, so I'm hoping they can fix it on my next visit.

Adding Cap Sleeves to a Strapless Dress
My dress is strapless, which had me scouring tutorials for adding sleeves. We're getting married in a church, and I wanted to be as respectful as possible, plus, I think my bare shoulders are not the most attractive, let's face it.

If alterations can't fix the unsightly armpit fat-bulge caused by my too-tight bodice, this will be a helpful camouflage. :)

Here are two nice tutorials I found for adding simple cap sleeves:

That's all for now - how about you? Did you do any last-minute alterations to your wedding dresses? Are there any tutorials you can recommend, or something you'd like to see here? Just leave a comment below! :)
