Antrim, Co Antri...






I have made two of these before but i needed a quick dress for my holiday so.i made it again. This time though i made alterations. I changed the straps. Its still two but one is a halter while the other straps goes into a point at the back. I then added a ruffle at the bottom. It was such a fun dress that i danced all night in x

    Now it’s clear that you had perfect motivation to renew your wardrobe completely: to dance all the nights and wander all the days in a company of such men is a great reason to sew twice more dresses:-)) I adore your hard-work and its result, Mary! Yesterday I was sure that blue and white winged dress is my favourite but you surprised today with ruffles, cnahged straps and great floral print. Wonderful dress for a night of dancing:-)

      Thank you liliv, i’m pleased with it now, the fabric was so vibrant that i hoped it would photograph well. It look’s so nice against the grafetti and it is a greatdancing dress, everything is covered, it’s lined but still light enough not to get to warm x

      Thanks cris,
      thats asa elliott, he’s in the new comedy show benidorm. We’ve known him for a few year’s now and he’s an amazing singer as well as gorgeous and he’s charasmatic and friendly as well. Did you not see the other big hunk in my blue/white dress photos? He’s called shaun conley and has been in the series as well. He’s fabulous and so gorgeous . That’s part of the reason we go to spain lol x
