Finally - Birthday dress!

So - it seems my Birthday dress should rather be called the "Don't want to be photographed dress". I've only tried let's see... three times before to make it stick without all the pictures turning out super blurry or overexposed. But hey, finally I got it! Not the most fetching pics of me perhaps, but you can see the dress!

Oh and by the way, it grows... I already took it in about two inches after the first try, now I'll have to take another two inches. I thought cotton was supposed to be... um, not so stretchy? I guess I'll wash it first anyway, who knows, it might shrink again.

Sneak peek - Birthday Dress

So - I finished the Birthday Dress, in time! Yay me!

Right now I am on a train across Sweden, heading home to see my family... Tomorrow's my birthday so you don't get to see the dress just yet, but I figured a little sneak peek where you can see the colors and pattern of the fabric could be fun...

Oh and this holdall bag is vintage, leather... and I found it in the garbage room of the apartment building I lived in a few years back. Nothing wrong with it, I guess the previous owner just didn't like it. Good for me!

I'll update with pictures of the dress "in action" on Tuesday!
