life has been so crazy over the last month and a half, I've hardly had time to think, let alone post! School has been, and will be for the next week, it's usual busy self, I've been doinga few extra shifts at the shop and went to France for 3 days last week, but the real killer has been my sister's wedding!
She married her girlfriend of 2 years on Friday the thirteenth of June :D it was only a simple wedding - registry office ceremony and afternoon tea reception in our garden - but it was just perfect for them!
I made Clare's dress, and a lovely floaty silk shirt for Carmelle, wheni get ontoa computer I'll find a photo to show you all. The trouble was, they were both such simple designs that they took forever and were so hard to make! There's no way I'm making my own wedding dress!!!! No way do I want that stress :p
All the crazy has meant that it took me a month and a half to make my first original costume college outfit! I already have 3 made, from previous events, thank goodness! And hopefully once school is over next week I'll be able to be a bit more productive! It's a 1790s drawstring printed muslin, the same pattern as my dress for this year's Bath ball, and is allgirliegirl32786s fault!!!! Anyway
Still need to work out what I'm going to do with my head (bonnet? Big hat? turban? fancy hair?) but I'm so glad one more dress is ticked off the list!
