    Such a gorgeous dress! And a wonderful fun flirty mother-of-the-bride outfit. I love the colour and the bow. I didn’t really need any more inspiration to get started on this pattern but this has definitely given me an itch to get stuck into it asap!

      You know, I didn’t have a specific color in mind when I went to buy fabric, but when I saw this, I immediately loved it! It’s such beautiful fabric, and close up it has a really lovely sheen, too!

    Your mom is so young and cute! I can’t believe she’s the mother of an adult! Okay, the dress is cute too. :)

      Isn’t she adorable?? She’s young for a mom of a person my age, and she looks even younger than she is! I’m hoping I’ll have the same luck (my dad is not so lucky— he’s only two years older than her, and people often think that she is his daughter!)
