What a day I’ve had! My darling daughter is 16 and it’s her prom on Wednesday (now Monday). For about a year she’s been choosing dress styles and we had it made about 5 months ago. Last night she said she needed it adjusting as she’s lost weight on her chest (strapless dress with gaping bodice is not a good look for her or me as her mother). So will I take it in for her?
Oh and while you’re at it, could you take it up? It’s supposed to have a small train as is the current fashion but now she’s frightened she’ll trip over it! Can you imagine the stress? I’m no seamstress, not bad at cushions but a 3 layered evening gown was a challenge. It won’t pass examination but unless you know I’ve had my mitts on it, you’d not notice. Aren’t they delightful? And to add insult to injury, she’s not keen on the fabric flower to go in her hair, will I make another with the fabric I took off her dress, that way the colour and fabric will match perfectly. It’s a good job I love her. Why wait until now???
On a positive note, I went to the car boot sale yesterday and found a man selling the wall tiles I’ve been longing for but they’ve not been within my budget. He’d been clearing out a mill and was given them. He wanted 1p per tile, I got enough for my kitchen for £4. Bargain of the century, so I’ve been able to afford a better floor in there as well as my carpets. Then I’m broke but my house will be almost finished. What a relief, I’ve never had a house that didn’t need work before. So I’m tired and my back aches but I’m very happy. Take care
