~Dress reveal & Birthdays~

Thanks to Magie at Teacups & Bunting blog for asking to have a peek at my Dress #2 that I mentioned in my previous post...I'm too shy and dissatisfied with photos of myself actually wearing the dress, but here it is without me in it...

I used some black cotton dress fabric with ditsy pink and grey roses, bought from Boyes for £3.99 a metre, but I actually used the reverse of the fabric for a more faded vintage look.
You can see the brighter fabric inside better here...
...I prefer the faded colours. I wore it with this pretty rose necklace and a thin black belt and patent shoes.  It did look nice I have to say, thanks in no small part to some good solid foundation garments!

It's also Small Dog's 2nd Birthday today...

Bless his little cotton socks.
He is so funny and good company.
Happy Birthday!

  10. The dress looks lovely Sally, I sometimes prefer the reverse fabric for a different effect.
    I've just bought some of the batiky style fabric they have in Boyes, maybe a top or some groovy trousers if I can sit and concentrate for a few hours on a pattern!
    Belated birthday wishes to Mr. Dog! x
