Fashion Parade Au Go Go for Outfit Number 49

A little sneak peak of my FASHION PARADE dress, I'm dropping it in the post ASAP. I might actually have to ask Husbie (aka MR VERONICA DARLING) to do it, as I've got to make the hair salon in 20 minutes!





I'm so proud of it! I also worked out that when I next make it (for myself) I'll take up the hem, alter the shoulders (shorten the space between shoulder & bust) and finish the sleeves of a little shorter. I'm *pretty* sure I'm skilled enough to do that little itty bitty bit of tailoring. There's some great material, denim like with a bit of a stretch, that I got from my mother-in-law, it's on the washing line back in this post, but you can't really see it that well! Blue and Green Massive Flowers!

Ok, better rush off! Getting my darling bob trimmed and new blonder whiter look! Oh, and as I'm not happy with a few outfits I started for Outfit Number 49, this gorgeous darling dress is now OUTFIT NUMBER 49

  8. Thank you for ALL your comments! I feel fabulous!

    The shoes are rusty red, but probably come up a little orange in the light of our kitchen! Now I think I've got an orange shoe crush too!
