18 Women Who Rolled Their Sleeves Up, and Made Gorgeous Gowns Themselves

We have lost the art of making clothes at home. Everyone understands that this work requires too much time and effort. But there are still women who are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and grab a needle and thread. They even make their own wedding dresses. Some gowns have been made so skillfully, that you could never tell they’re self-made and not bought at a designer’s boutique.

At Bright Side, we admire women who have such skillful hands. Join us.
