Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue

Hope you've all had a great week!

 For the last two weeks straight after the market we've gone straight to The Rusty Zip my favourite vintage shop in Belfast. The first week I bought a fab maxi dress £18 purely for the fabric, the dress was too big for me and the puffy sleeves were just too big! But I could see the potential for a very cute dress. I forgot to take a pic of the dress in it's original state....I chopped of the bottom and then headed round to sister Christine with my old dress for a lesson in dress making. I borrowed her machine, learned some handy tips, she showed me how to sew on bias binding and how to pin correctly. I skipped home with my new dress and after a freshen up in the machine, it's as good as new! And there is enough fabric left to make two cushions and lots of scraps for birdies.

 The new dress got it's first outing last night!

Have a super dooper weekend everyone!
