The girl in the lilac dress

Last Autumn we were invited to a wedding.

We hadn’t been to one for ages and it’s a great excuse to dress up.

As usual Tash put her order in…so a trip to the Rag Market and – how lucky we were!

Perfect fabric, perfect colour and we found the perfect matching chiffon – not even on the same stall.

I used a basic princess seam pattern from one of my dress patterns and made the rest up myself.

Here’s Tash with our cat Crayon.  Good friends!

I hand stitched the trim around the waist.

She loved wearing it but I don’t know when she’ll wear it again…but as it cost less than £10 to make, that’s ok.
