I started this dress AGES ago. I wanted it for summer. Then I thought it would be perfect for our peer inspiration week as it was Debi and Mena who made me think I might be able to make a vintage pattern. This is a 1940s wrap dress that closes at the back. It has roses on so it is now Spanish Harlem! Pics of the pattern and more silliness on my blog. In the meantime I persuaded Mr T to actually take a photo somewhere apart from our kitchen - the cacti are supposed to be sort of related to the theme ;0) I particularly like the rick-rack around the waist and neckline on this pattern.

Okay blogger is being bloggy so here's what I attempted to write to you…

What a great outing and I love your dress. I'm glad you finished it, it's really pretty and Mia is adorable too. High five to your hubby for taking lovely pictures of two lovely ladies!

Beautiful job Charlotte - I hope you get a few warm days so you can enjoy it properly. You look lovely (and the shoes! the shoes!)

Cute, and way to put the effort into getting a cactus in the shot! Plus those shoes are amaaaazing.
