Finally got the wedding dress fabric!

So, I finally worked out my skirt issues (more on that tomorrow) and could finally buy my underlining fabric! Yay! So, I fought afternoon traffic to go to Fishman's and bought 4 yards of white china silk lining to line the dress. 
 I bought 4 yards of silk charmeuse as my underlining fabric, but turned inside out so the shine does not detract from the lace.!
 My lace is from Mood and I bought it several months ago. I never found any other fabric I liked to the same degree and I am really happy with it; I think it is really pretty!

 I layered them over each other to get the final combination!
Yay! I am a giant procrastinator, but I will finish my dress in the next 2 weeks no problem! Figuring out the pattern was the problem!

Woot, woot!
