My Purple dress Purple is my favorite color, that’s why it was one of the main colors of our wedding (along with green, Ken’s favorite color). But after the wedding and for longer than a year I could not even look at purple, I was so sick of it!

I decided to make a dress for Ken’s cousin wedding last weekend and as usual I had to share it with all of you. I had that purple fabric way before our wedding – I actually brought it from Chile – and yes, if you are wondering, did she really move to the California with a bunch of fabric? Yes I did =]
