Wedding shoes!

It's my friend Frances' wedding in about 1 month and I'm busy preparing her present (a crocheted blanket, photos to follow once it's finished!) and my outfit.

I'm making another version of the retro 1950's style dress but with a more flowing skirt, in light blue (one of the wedding colours). I haven't decided what to do about a cardigan/shrug yet though, I'm scouring ebay and etsy for ideas!

To go with the dress, I recently traded these marvelous shoes from Revolving Styles. They fit perfectly and although they're a little bashed up, I traded them for $14 and a pair of earrings so I think I can overlook some 'character'!

I'm really looking forward to the wedding, just got to crack on with the dress!

Wow! I'm amazed by your skills. I'd never even begin to try and make my own dress.

Aww, thank you! It's honestly not too difficult, once you've got your head around the pattern it's like reading a recipe. I'm slightly worried about the dress for the wedding though, it's the first time I'll have made clothes out of material I bought 'new' rather than for-cheap-in-a-charity-shop!
