Monique Sandoval made her wedding dress the night before her big day.
She sewed up the gown, which she describes as Mexican bohemian, with her step-grandmother, who taught her to use a needle and thread. She remembers the late night fondly. With antique crocheted fabric Sandoval found on Etsy and silk tulle, she completed the one-shoulder frock just hours before her Halloween ceremony at The Icehouse.
That was about three years ago. The marital bliss has endured -- and so has the dressmaking.
