I designed this for the wedding of my big brother. He asked me to be his best girl, so I needed something special. The wedding was planned for May 2, a time of year when you really can’t predict the weather. The short sleeves gives you some warmth, for chilly evenings. And the wedding? It was a beautiful ceremony. The weather? We got a lot of sun and some rain. Enjoy making it!!!
