Ta da!

The wedding dress is done!

Pearl took Oscar to the art gallery today, so it was just Olive and I at home putting in a stellar effort to get this little baby finished.

I'm chuffed to bits. So chuffed, in fact, that I don't even know what to say about it, other than that it kind of reminds me of Cyndi Lauper. And the filmclip for 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun'. The impression that filmclip made upon my tender little brain is impossible to overestimate, methinks. She was my first love (at the age of 5) and also the reason I started sewing. You don't get 10-year-old size Cyndi outfits just anywhere, you know? So as I was making this dress, even though I was listening to Grizzly Bear, Beirut, The Decemberists and the Black Keys, I was actually thinking of Cyndi, and all her colourfulness and netted petticoats.


  1. Said it before but I do need to say it again - I totally love it Annie! Thank you so much for making such a wonderful creation for my wedding - it is everything I hoped for! I am very much looking forward to trying it on and hope that the chocolate cake and wine I have been consuming over the past couple of weeks haven't made too much of a difference! Katie x
