Slowly but surely over the last few days I have been working towards completing the dress that I will wear to my sister’s wedding on Saturday. This week I have had my niece staying with me which has led me to completing the dress whilst she is in bed, last night I finally managed to complete it:

Fingers crossed all goes well on Saturday.
