So how is the dress/planning/wedding going?

21 Jun

Lots of changes around here. Without boring you, we’ve had to topsy-turvy our plans for the wedding to accommodate some family. It’s been a little challenging but we’ve come around to it, salvaged quite a lot of the original arrangements in one way or another, and now we just have to find new caterers and confirm the other suppliers who are being a little elusive. Ahem.

I am still on for making the wedding dress. I may be channelling my inner bridezilla by deciding to go on a diet first and them make the dress later. Yes, I know, I know, less than three months to go but given that the diet has to happen no matter what for the sake of my health, then there’s little point in spending time on a fitted dress now when I might not be the same size in six weeks (this all makes sense in my head). Instead, in the meantime I am going to do important things like make bunting... yay! But it’s all got to be done, right? Tonight we’re off to look at a suit for Mr D, which is very exciting indeed. It’s a rather unusual one so if it works then I might even do a little outfit rejigging…

Also I realised that I was peering too hard at the pattern pieces, struggling to fit them on the dressmakers doll, unable to figure out why they just didn’t look right. Then I realised I’d omitted reading one rather important instruction: on the fold. Whoops. Time to step back and return to it fresh!

    Good Luck with your plans! And Mr. D???? Don’t you think it should be Mr. F??? There’s not a D anywhere in Flibbertygibbet!!!

      Yes you are totally right – of course it should be Mr F! 🙂 Then at some point (IRL anyway) I’ll be becoming Mrs D…
