But first of all I had to bake the cakes, which is a lot more complex since they've started to work out why I've been sick. I had to bake cakes that were gluten free, dairy free, egg free, and easy to make. I didn't want to spend all morning in the kitchen for something that might taste.... yucky. Thankfully there are a few gluten free cake mixes available, and with the help of vegan butter and egg replacer, I was able to make something I could eat.
It has a cherry on top!
I also purchased some flowers, though I couldn't get roses...but at least they were pink!
And I sat down with my Mum and Dad (my girlfriends live too far away for this kind of impromptu gathering) and had High Tea!
But I suppose what you really want to see is what the dress I made looks like on.
Oh damn it! I just realised I forgot to have the bag with me! The bag that encouraged me to sew this dress in the first place... sigh!
This dress is wonderfully comfortable! I think its to do with the loose fit of the bodice. And I really love the piping detail on the bodice and the pocket flaps. I can see me 'stash busting' and making a couple more from fabric I impulse purchased and have done nothing with. I can't be the only person who does that....
