I've had such a lovely morning making a start on Heather's wedding dress. I'd got bored of fiddling about with toiles, but was slightly nervous of actually starting with the silk and lace. So glad I have now though, because so far (fingers crossed etc) it's coming together rather nicely.
Can't do any more today though because we need to do another fitting, and I've decisions to make re button holes.
The pattern calls for bound buttonholes, but I think that's almost certainly because it's a 1954 pattern, and I'm tempted to do machine buttonholes instead. I'll try both out on some scrap before I make any firm decisions. Got to cover all the buttons first anyhow.

Oh and before I go I have to just mention this cool video . After I posted the other day about washing all my flat nappies,this lovely lady left me a comment on flickr. Check out her other terry nappy pics too, they really made me smile, and judging by some of the comments left here they'll make a lot of you smile too.

Don't be shy, say hello!
