Vintage dress restyled

This lovely simple  vintage dress bought in Dublin. A request,from a lady for her second marriage, to change this dress befitting for a bride. The fabric was so beautiful ,delicate,light and simple.
As you can see the neckline was typically vintage, as was the sleeve style.
Adding a satin waistband with a decorative embellishment fitted to the front changed the style greatly,but something was missing!!!!!!!!!!! Yes an underskirt to fill the skirt,now it was complete.
Can't wait to see this lovely lady all dressed up on her wedding day.
It was a pleasure restyling her dress.

Easter Chicks Flannel Blanket

This is my newest flannel baby blanket,so pretty in reality trimmed across the top in lemon with a lemon heart sewn under my "Angel" label.
Slightly stronger in colour than the picture shows. Reverse side in white flannel fabric. So soft and cosy for baby.

I love making these baby blankets and  bibs to match.

 I have also decided on making matching baby booties !
What do you think?
