I have been putting off this post for a while waiting for better pictures.... but in the meantime I have realised I have made many things that I have neglected to blog about, usually due to lack of pictures or at least pictures that I was'nt happy with....
so biting the bullet here we go after a couple of months silence.
My brother got married in November,
so a couple of days before that weekend
( as usual I love to work to a deadline! I'll never learn )
I completed this dress from the remnants of a dress that had I made myself hence the name "mini me" and yes I have yet to blog about that said dress.....I'll get there!
Anyway....I was really estactic with the way this turned out
and when I found that the skirt of the dress would be too short, fate would have it that I had the perfect salmon pink shot sateen in my stash....I used the pink to completely line the skirt and it added a nice weight and puff to the shape.
The dress was my own pattern, that I based on a her measurements and was helped with the easing of the shirring in the back.
Also this cardigan, I made a while ago, turned out to be the perfect colour match, and came in handy for the chill of a Hamilton evening
Since the wedding, the dress has made a lovely Christmas day dress and I'm hoping for more future occasions to dress her up before she out grows it.
But you know I think the reason why I'm so happy with it,
is how this came together easily and without any issues
You know how it goes, when you win..you win and when you lose
it gets thrown in the rubbish bin! ( Mike just told me I have a glint in my eye while writing this - so obviously I'm still chuffed )
