    Oh, this looks beautiful and I’m sure the lady must have been over the moon!

      Thank you. She loves this, the toffee coloured one I made with buttons up the front, and the white top, and three lacy cotton petticoats! :D

      Because she’s a large lady, she has real trouble buying stuff to fit at a reasonable price. And I love making my customers happy!

      Thank you. It’s lovely fabric to work with. Very user friendly, except you can’t put buttonholes in i!

    I sure she loves this outfit Darl – once again your finishing is perfection, and how cool would that fabric be for her in the heat. It’s nice to see outfits for people of all shapes and sizes. The colour is very pretty.

      Thank you.

      I did love working with the fabric. SO heavily embroidered… And lots of holes! Hence the no buttonholes!

      The challenge was in the size. OK, she’s 5’10", but with a 65" bust and a 60" waist! Lovely lady. A joy to work for. I have another outfit to do (buttons up the front this time, in a less manic pattern!), and another top in the same broidery anglaise use for this one, but in white.
