Sydney Again., A...
Five years later, 2 kids, and a huge pasta meal just before the photos were taken my dress still fits.
I made this for my Dad’s wedding as I was his “Best Chicky”. Blue isn’t my colour of choice but knew my dad loved blue. Made with a very basic but reliable Janome Mystyle, no overlocker. I hand sewed on the diamontes a couple of days before the wedding.
I think it was the first time I did an invisible zipper and am quite suprised at how well I made it.
I’d like to wear it again if I had anywhere to go other than the playground sandpit.
