Not my work

DSC00852

But wanted to share the beautiful dress of Pauline, who married yesterday and I was proud and honored to be invited. Look at Pauline’s blog for more photos. In the past months she made all the bridesmaids dresses and her own dress. Quite an achievement and didn’t she look gorgeous?

This next picture was taken by my husband a little prior to the official photographer taking photos. Next to me is Vivien, another sewing friend of both Pauline and me. It was so nice to see her again as well. Mentioning to a few other guests that we were sewing friends brought the subject on the ‘great british sewing bee’  program which a lot of people had seen though they were not sewing themselves. Ann’s achievements in the program got a lot of praise.

My dress was made by me a few years ago. This time I found shoes in the exact color. The photos show the dress in more blue tones than it really is, it’s an emerald green silk.

My husband and I are enjoying another few days in the UK, doing some sight seeing and walks at the south coast of England. After we’re back I’ll be finishing a jacket I’m making so I will hope to be posting more soon again. The winter blues are over.
