It was a very pretty pink and white dress with white ties. Gorgeous!
I was also delighted to meet Tricia when she drove over from Somerset to hand deliver me 31 dresses that her sewing group had made! A big thanks to Tricia for driving them over and to Bek from Oh Sew Lovely who organised the making of the dresses. Bek makes the most beautiful things. Check out the photos on her facebook page. I managed to squeeze in some photos of the dresses between the rain and look at how lovely they look.
The dresses are all made from upcycled pillowcases and each one has its own unique embellishment.

Simply beautiful. I thought I would show you some lovely photos of Bek's sewing group hard at work!
Thanks guys. Amazing effort all round!
I was feeling like I needed to make some more dresses too so had a little shopping trip to Fabricland with Izzy. The staff are still miserable but its SOOOO cheap. Some lovely fabric at £2.99 a metre. Perfect for little dresses!
I couldn't decide on this one. I quite like it. Izzy loved it and my other half thinks it looks like an old ladies duvet cover! What do you think?
I also bought some bias binding, ribbon and ric rac at a lovely ribbon shop in Bristol
Remember my John Lewis fabric? I did actually get round to making a dress for Izzy. What do you think??
and finally I had quite a drastic hair cut today. I'm not sure I like it. Its very short for me. Want to have a look?
It will grow back I guess!!
