Not Just Green, but Green

I have decided that I am getting married in green.
Screw white.
Purple and Green are my favorite colors. But I’m not particularly fond of wearing large amounts of purple, I prefer it more of an accent color, y’know. So, I want my dress to be green. Like a moss green with a sort of dusty purple ribbon/cumberbund thing with echinacea flowers decorating the back. Yea. That’s my idea. But alas, I don’t know how to sew. My mother will have to help me, but I’m not sure she’ll be able to work with the type of fabric I’m thinking of. (I’m thinking layers of gauzy type fabric, but it has to be soft, not that stiff stuff)
Oh jeeze. I’m going to make a faerie dress for my handfasting.
Call me fluffy.
Well, anyway, I’m going to have to go shopping for fabric and find a pattern and work with my mom on this. I want it done by August 17th. (Not the morning of the wedding like last time)
Here are some fabric links…

So I am in love with a delicious Karen Millen confection from last summer’s line.
It’s just a wee bit beyond my price range…
