I unearthed these photos last night. I was trolling for photos for the 2013 BB Calendar, and chanced upon this small series I had taken in Janurary and MEANT to blog.
They are of my daughter and a special dress.
A dress worn on our wedding day (11 years ago) by my husband’s brother’s daughter – the eldest of three flowergirls at our wedding (it wasn’t actually THAT full-on, we only had a Best Man and Best Woman besides the flowergirls). I fell in love with the material in the somewhat stressful lead-up to our wedding. It is a sheer deep, soft green with an olive underlay. My sister Jeanie wore a dress (design of her own choosing) from the same material.
(Obviously this doesn’t show the colour or the gauzy overlay material on Jeanie’s dress, but it DOES show how beautiful she is!)
Anyway, I had been waiting and waiting for there to be an ‘occasion’ for Violet to wear the flowergirls’ dress …
Finally she snapped and wore it for dinner (gala events including kids are few and far between out here!).
And it was a tight fit.
These photos do NOT do the dress or the material justice – I had the white balance on the camera set on SOMETHING very incorrect.
But still, you get the idea…
All our wedding party dresses (save mine) were all sewn by a lovely lady who lives about 100km from here – who had done a friend’s wedding dress.
And what does a little girl do in an exciting, much-anticipated dress?
You see why I had to share – NOW she’s worn it in public!
