And omg! I have matching shoes and headband! (I just HAD to show this off haha

So the majority of it is handsewn, but my mum decided to teach me how to use the sewing machine half way through, so yay! The hem of the skirt and straps took a fraction of the time that the rest did. And no I didn't paint Gromit on, that's from a top.

Mmmm I love my dress yum.

TUTE ADDED - Be nice, it's my first.






Thanks for looking Smiley

Thats way adorable! I love how it matches.

What kind of fabric is the Yellow fabric? Stretchy?

Naw, it's not really stretchy - it's a light cotton.

And thanks for all the awesome comments guys Smiley
