My brother got married at the weekend and I finally got to wear my long awaited Oolong dress (my previous posts documenting the making of this dress can be found here and here). I LOVED wearing this dress and am so pleased with how it turned out. It's probably one of the most flattering dresses I own - I think because it skims your curves instead of clinging to them! I took quite a lot off the length as I wanted it to be properly knee length (and I'm short) and this seemed to add to the overall 1940's look.
I don't usually plaster my blog posts with so many pictures but I make no apologies for doing so today because I love this dress so much! Here one from the actual wedding:
... and here's a peek inside my clutch bag, yes, I couldn't resist making a matching purse!
It was well worth the teeth gnashing of my earlier posts to have a finished dress I was so delighted with. Thanks everybody for all your valuable advice and encouragement. I'll just say it one more time, I love this dress..... x
