Finally a photo

I have a completed dress, in fact I've got 3.  Well one still needs hemming, but I have to wait for the camera battery to recharge before I get pictures.  I do have proof of me wearing the 1st one though.  Last night was our local NHS trust learning & development awards evening, where I received my certificate for completing the manual handling trainers course.  It was a BBQ & the dress code was smart.  Now some wore outdoor smart casual, some wore casual, quite a few were in long patterned maxi dresses & me?  Well I went for elegant & make a long lasting impression on the management (networking - I told them I was destined for management!) & I think I succeeded.  My hairdresser did a fantastic job of an Audrey Hepburn inspired up do.  Even my charity shop handbag decorated for a wedding last year was revamped with a black velvet ribbon.  Edited to add the pattern is Vogue 2988.
