My 40th / Valentines Day dress

Added Feb 14, 2012

I’ve been eyeing off this gorgeous floral tulle from Tessutis for ages and last night I had a Valentines Black and White party to go to so literally made this in a last minute rush. Version 1 tanked at the last minute. Luckily I’ve used this pattern before so I didn’t have to do any adjusting.

Best thing about turning 40? – a $300 a Tessuti fabirc voucher from my ex/kiddies !!!!
Probably the guilt of forgetting it was my birthday! No excuse seeing as it’s Valentines day as well.
