mini debutante

The idea for this one has been bubbling in my head for a while and I managed to get a good start on it up at Shabby Chick Shack last Friday night.


I'm really pleased with it. It's pretty much how I had imagined it except the font is a bit small. It says:

You felt so very special when you tried on Mum's Debutante dress. Mum wore it in 1986 when she was sixteen years old. It was also the bicentennial year for South Australia (150 years of settlement). Anyway there you were in an adults size 8 and you being a child size 6. It took quite a few pins to hold it all together. And you did look beautiful.

The lace work was very carefully cut from a delicate doily and adhered with spray adhesive.
