All other crafting seems to have been abandoned, as I just concentrate on "the dress". I am really pleased with how it has turned out so far. I added a really pretty but quite simple trim, and this time the skirt is lined and it has a bow at the back.
The top section is organza, and the main purple sections quite a simple cotton, but it seems to have quite a nice silky sheen in these photos.
Doing my practice version really did help, mainly with my confidence.
So the only thing left to do is the hem. We are still having a heated debate over this. I think my daughter is coming round to the idea of keeping it fairly long, as at this try on she liked how it felt so swishy. Sorry, but you will probably have to see some more photos of the actual event.
