Saying goodbye

Added Jan 19, 2013

Saying goodbye to a loved one is such an incredibly hard thing to do…a plain black dress worn to a loved one’s funeral recently. Again, just a few of my own ideas added together, a cowl front and back neckline, and of course my favourite sleeveless version. For some extra detail, I’ve added a lace border to the bottom hem.

Material Notes

My favourite high quality knit

    It is a beautiful dress. I’m sure you’re loved one would have really appreciated the effort. I’m sorry for your loss.

      thank you so much for your kind words..it was actually so hard to make this dress (and I do not know why I did!!) but perhaps it was just my way of going through the process of saying goodbye!
