Can I share something light hearted? I'm aware I'm not the most chipper person of late, but this does me giggle like a school girl.
We're going to an evening wedding in October and I set my heart on a 50's style dress. I bought a vintage pattern, was all set to have it made, but after speaking to the dress maker and having her quote me $550 for the making plus all the fabric which I would need 5m of each fabric and liner, I decided I'd try something else.
So, I've bought my first vintage dress. It hasn't arrived yet (etsy shop DearGoldenVintage) but I'm beyond excited about it. The trick is finding a dress that will fit. I have a 28" waist but so many of them are only around 24-25". I didn't want to take on a corset and this one was exactly my measurements. I hope it's as lovely as it looks - soooo excited.
