I am in love with these dresses!!

I am so in love with these dresses  from Hawaiian heaven 

 I am doing the  bomshell dress course I had debated as to whether I could wear it until I saw these shrugs on their website, its perfect cover up and goes beautifully with the dress!

Thanks to a member of the sewing forum who showed me a pattern that is similar to the Hawaiian heaven's shrug which is view A of this pattern simplicity 2478 I cant wait to get started now

Remember I was given a box of vintage patterns?

I finally made a dress using one of the vintage patterns that I was given, it took me ages trying to grade the patterns as sizes were 6 inches smaller than today's dress size!

It was the only picture I could find of me wearing the dress on Saturday night out with friends
