I made this dress for the Sew Dolly Clackett competition which was organised by the lovely Sarah of Rhinestones and Telephones to celebrate Roisin and Nic's wedding which is happening tomorrow (can not wait to see the dress!). This post may be late (very very late) but I did manage to get the dress finished and up on the flickr group on the day of the deadline (23rd April). There were many many awesome dresses created by some rather fabulous people (Hello lots of new blogs for me to read) and I think Roisin and her judging team picked some gorgeous winners.
This was my second dress and in all honesty if I had pulled my finger out I could have entered many more dresses indeed. I love Roisin taste in fabric and there are many (most) of her creations that I would happily
I've christened this the Don't Quote Me dress and I wore it for my birthday dinner and got quite a few compliments as well as a few people stopping me so they could read me! One guy even thought it was an X-Men dress.....I NEED to find some X-Men fabric and make this a real thing.
For some strange reason I decided to dye my hair back to dark brown on my birthday (really shouldn't keep hair dye in the cupboard it leads to impulsive decisions) and I've lived with it for eighteen days before deciding that it really is redheads that have more fun so it's back to red as soon as possible!
