Update on the dresses

The shirt dress fits perfectly although looks like it will need ironing before being worn as it is very creased - boo! The shoulders on the linen dress are a little odd and may need shortening but I can't be bothered to do that for a while!

This is a parcel that was sent off to a lovely lady yesterday - it's a surprise so I can't say who but I'm sure she will blog about it when it arrives :) I really enjoyed wrapping it up and I might extend this type of packaging to my sales - what do you think?

Here you can see the button ring I have included as an extra - I think it works as a decoration as well as being practical!

Here you can see that I have used an old tray cover that has been cross stitched and vintage lace to tie it together.

Close up of the details! I'm really pleased with how it has turned out but let me know what you think too please!

Wow! What a scrummy looking parcel. Anyone receiving that would be over the moon, and that's before they've opened it to see what goodies are inside.
I know I'm a bit dumb but this will go in a Jiffy or be given an outer covering before going in the post won't it? (blonde attack!!)

Yes it does go in a big jiffy beforehand - normally one I have made from recycled books etc but this one went out in just a bog standard brown one.

That is absolutely gorgeous Swirly - who wouldn't love to receive a gift that has had so much thought put into it.
