CHERRY CHERRY

I bought this dress off Ebay a few weeks ago. It was originally very long, as you can see from the first photo, but with a bit of help from mum I managed to shorten it into a nice spring dress! Completely love how it turned out!

It almost touched the floor at the original length.

A close-up on the actual pattern, which I love!

And after a little work and patience, it looks like this!

The corset-style back, partially covered by my hair, which was briefly the bane of my existence whilst I was trying to hem it properly!

And, yes, I'm fully aware this one isn't in good focus, but I like it anyhow.

I'm getting well excited for the nice weather so I can start wearing my spring and summer clothes properly. Enough of these rainy, 10 degree days!!
