Doing it my way!

After going back and forwards back and forwards, looking at patterns etc. I spoke to my boss this morning, during a quiet moment at work, turns out she was a wedding dress maker before she owned the shop. So we went through patterns, had a good old talk, and gave me lots to think about.

I came home deciding to make my own.
Now I've spent the afternoon looking at patterns again, and Burda 8056 jumped out at me.

The shape is what I want, and I think I will add some sort of rouching/detailing to the front. But otherwise it's lovely. I can't wait to get started on it.

There's plenty of time (ish!)
4th August is the day. So the date will read 4-8-12(in the southern hemisphere anyway lol). Rather cool!

And on that note - driving past a car hire place in town, they had this in the window. Cue a "STOP THE CAR" from me and then DO A U TURN!!!
This dress I saw is beautiiiiful!
