23 new dresses arrived this week taking our total to over 350! I took advantage of the lovely weather to take some photos in the garden.
A fantastic parcel of dresses from Pauline who sent 20 beautiful dresses and has promised more!! They were all absolutely gorgeous.
All different sizes
Lots of different colours and fabrics
Lots of pretty pockets and detail
They looked so pretty in the sunshine
I also received another upcycled dress from the very talented Valerie. You can see the before and after photos on her lovely blog here
I love the little crocheted flower detail on the dress
and the co-ordinating hairband. So cute
The lovely Jo from Bearpaw also sent another 2 gorgeous dresses
I love the spotty handmade bias binding and ties on this one. Lovely.
Thanks everyone. I really appreciate you all sending so many dresses. I think I have just made a good contact in terms of getting the dresses to where they are needed so will keep you updated on where they are going!
We've had a busy week-end in the sunshine. Saturday was Izzy's butterfly party for her 6th birthday. We went to a local butterfly house and then back to ours for tea. The weather was fantastic and meant all the children could go in the garden which saved the house being destroyed. I'm a bit butterflied out now after scouring the country and ebay for butterfly themed things!
