You might remember sometime ago I was making a tea cup dress (you can see the beginnings here) well things didn't go as well as I had hoped. I was a litte over ambitious I think. I really wanted it to be a fifties dress with a big flowing skirt. I also didn't want straps. I wanted the dress to go up to my neck. I have to admit I really struggled with this dress. I unpicked it a million times and wrestled and wrestled and wrestled with it. I did manage to finish it for the wedding but it wasn't my perfect vision. I also only really have one picture of me wearing it, we tried to do a photo shoot but I insisted on pulling ridiculous faces in most of the pictures so they have been vetoed! Well here it is:
It was a little chilly on the day so a cardigan (well actually two cardigans) is hiding the top. I love the pink netting, I really enjoyed wearing it at the wedding but my confidence has been severely knocked. It was incredibly hard to get the dress to this stage and I am thinking of taking some pattern making classes, I have always wanted to but never got around to it. Well I think it is time, if I want to make what I think in my head then I think it is time to find out some more about how to fit cloth to the human body and stop just trying to sculpt it.
On a much more positive note, the wedding was lots and lots and lots of fun and it was so lovely to see everyone again. I also discovered that Yorkshire is unbelievably beautiful! Congratulations again K and T, thanks for a fab weekend.
Lots of love
