Back soon!

Just to let you know I will be having a wee break over the school holidays. With the kids off, a wedding cake to make, a new kitchen coming, a back garden to tame, little e's birthday Rapunzel costume to make and a living room to get livable in before winter I am bit bit busy!

Here is a peek of the yet to be completed wedding cake...

Back in a month or so!

Wedding wear - 2 Vogue's and a Butterick!

It is wedding season here and the first one of the year was last weekend. I made my sisters, my and little e's dresses for the day!

My sisters was Vogue 1102, a lovely simple pattern.

She chose 100% cotton curtain weight fabric in pink and wore a sticky out petticoat underneath.

Little e's dress is the one I blogged about here

I was so glad it still fitted her, I love it!

My dress was Butterick 5490
It looked like the pattern on the hanger but unfortunately my haste in making it last year, therefore no muslin, my large rib cage and a few too many cakes meant it was a little on the snug side.... I am assured it looked better in real life!

Excuse the grimace, the sun was in my eyes and I was struggling to breathe!!
 The only good thing about that photo is that it will make me loose some more lbs!

Last but not least, just so I don't leave them out, my boys in their kilts:)


Now to decide what to wear to the next one in a couple of weeks!
