i wish nothing but the best for you too..
i know i've shown this dress before, i'm quite pleased with the way it turned out, although i erred a little too much on the caution side of things, and it's probably a bit too big..luckily the tie at the front can be used to cinch it in quite a bit..i love the material, it's a kind of flannel feel to it, which makes it lovely and warm (definitely needed on a chilly saturday, which it was!)
speaking of my dressmaking skills (disclaimer - term 'skills' used in the loosest possible sense of the word..) i'm rather excited - as part of my Queen's Guide award, i'm planning to improve my skills at dressmaking, and have been in contact with a lovely woman who is planning to help me with this - i have to go and meet her with something i have made, and see how i can set up some 'targets' to show my progression and improvement over a year..
back to the outfit - i totally love these comfortable red boots as well, i think that for quality, Office usually do seem to make shoes which last very well - my favourite nautical platforms have put up with days and days of heavy wear and the heel tips aren't even showing any damage..these boots are leather and were a fantastic ebay bargain at £31, and even better they are ridiculously comfortable - i'd choose them over a pair of uggs any day...the rest of the outfit was fairly boring, black cardi, new look lace tights in cream..roll on feeling better and getting more adventurous :)
hope that everyone is having a lovely weekend, i'm spending mine catering for 20 girls at my friends' guide unit holiday..we will be doing our 'filmlover' badge..apologies for being such a guidey-geek at the moment .... :)
