a dress for June

My June dress for the calendar dresses
is to wear to a summer wedding.

The background is made from a birthday card

I received from

a good friend...

and the wording on it was about true friendship.

The sash is made from a delicate serviette

my mum wrapped my birthday present in -

so pretty & compliments the dress perfectly

Background, a wedding card I bought for a friend

but gave her a homemade one instead.

  1. Ahhhh, such a pretty dress - I love the sash addition. Lovely backgrounds used. x

  2. Usually I like to make my dress before I go out "looking" but couldn't help myself ... Love how you've repurposed special items Penny and turned them into a Cinderella dress ... oh so lovely!!!
