So my darling daughter made her first Holy Communion this morning and looked lovely in the Regency pattern dress that some lovely folks here turned me on to. A million thanks! Her veil is made from my wedding veil, too. Lucky little sister will get the other layer of my veil – bordered in cording and dotted with pearls.
And I’m wearing my newest project: Simplicity 3833. What you can’t see in the picture above is the piping that goes down the center front and under the bust/at the waist line. I made it myself!!! W00T to the Ceiling Cat for learning a new skill! The back waist is trimmed with a belt-ish thingy and I trimmed that bad boy out in piping as well. I also found some AMAZING retro styled buttons at Joann’s which look like they were custom made for the dress. Quilt fabric never looked so good. 😉 Also, check out the $3.99 Anne Klein II shoes from the Charity Shop. Worn *maybe* once. And perfect with the dress.
