      Thank you. I was a bit anxious to make this as it was my first pair of trousers but thankfully all was good!

      Thank you. I think so too. Usually wax cotton is so bright and ‘out there’ but this one was more sedate!

    A gorgeous outfit for a gorgeous model! I have never heard of an event with such an unusual dressing code!

      Thank you Elpida. It is usual for a West African wedding for guests to dress in the same fabric as a sign of support, togetherness and community. It isn’t usual for a Christening but Lucy wanted it all the same! :-)

      Thank you Maira. Ha! Yes she was! All the other ladies had dresses or skirts and the men had shirts or tunics. :-)
