Sorry for the delay!

I'm SO sorry it's taken such a long time to finish this story...there have been so many lovely things going on, I've just been carried away with life and haven't found the time to sit at the computer for more than a few minutes at a time.


Needless to say, the dress was finished, the bride looked gorgeous and somehow we arrived at the end of the school year. 6 weeks later, the holidays are all over and my big girl is now in Year One! We're onto Day Two which was also "brilliant" - her words, not mine.


But let's backtrack somewhat....


Wednesday 29th June


After my last post I knuckled down and finished the job. B2B was slightly surprised by my rush visit as I arrived on her doorstep and presented said dress to her, my girls shouting from the car (it was already after bedtime!) to get Jess's attention. I had decided that the dress needed to go immediately that it was finished. Otherwise, knowing myself too well, I knew I would keep worrying, keep looking at it and maybe even start fiddling again. NO! Enough!

So, here are the long-awaited photos:

Pinning the hem.

Something blue...


Zippedy-doo-dah!

 The mini-train.

Ta-dah, one finished dress!

 All packed up and ready to go!

Mr & Mrs Barber cut the cake.

Of course, I completely forgot to take any photos at the wedding. Suffice to say, the bride looked gorgeous, as did the groom (once his tie was turned the right way!), and it was a truly fabulous occasion.

Congratulations to Mr and Mrs Barber!
