Great Yarmouth, ...






As soon as I saw this I knew I wanted to participate. As for the embellishment, one of my daughters suggested lace and there you have it: stretch crepe/stretch lace, whatever the outcome of this competition, I had fun creating it and ended up with a lovely dress!

      Thank you very much Lindsay. This is so exciting, but in reality I don’t rate my chances too high, so many nice versions:-((

      There are loads of nice versions you’re right! At least you get a fab dress to wear out of it regardless of the outcome though!!

      Haha, yeah normally my front yard has to do for taking photos, but on this occasion I got lucky. absolutely wanted to participate this time ( just loved this pattern) but going on holiday meant I had to rush making the dress but got compensated by this beautiful fairytale castle for the pictures. Like your blue version, very classy, good luck!!
