Hey so last night was Holly's birthday party. This is the one who's dress I made but everything about it was a secret, nobody knew what colour or style it was going to be. It turned out really well and she loved it! She kept thanking me all night and I got a special mention in her speech which was ace. And everyone kept coming up to me and saying well done and that it looked great so it really was a success :)
Holly and Me both in Miss Lottie Lou dresses
As you can see we have very very different styles! When we first started work on the dress she said she wanted a gold sequinned halterneck....I think I delivered! Her original idea for the skirt part wasn't feasible with the fabric we'd picked out so we went with making the dress all in one as opposed to a separate skirt and bodice which made for a much nicer streamlined dress. When she came for fittings she kept saying tighter, shorter! Then the night before the party she said make it longer...now you can't make fabric grow! Luckily I had made the hem quite big just incase of such an event! Can't believe how horrifically pale she makes me look. The dress I had made for myself was just a simple knee length shift dress with square kneckline on front and back out of beautiful rose print fabric that I had in my stash.
It was a really good night but I don't drink very often but my goodness when I do I end up very drunk. Fun at the time but the really sore head the day after is not so much fun. Which yup means today was not a productive day.
I shall be up bright and early tomorrow though to do lots of work before I take my Mum out for Mothers Day. We're going to see Gentlemen Prefer Blondes at the GFT which is a beautiful old cinema with original features. Are you guys taking your Mum's anywhere nice?
Right I'm heading off to bed to try catch up on my sleep after all that partying :)
