Candy Stripes

At last my Internet is working again. Living out in the sticks, broadband speeds are a little volatile to say the least.

I wanted to talk about a fitting for a wedding dress I had yesterday which went wonderfully well. I can't say too much about this dress just in case the husband to be decides to take an interest in dress making!

The bride did bring along some awesome accessories to wear with her dress, one of which was this gorgeous little fascinator from coast made in candy stripes. This has inspired me to make a candy striped dress when I get the chance with a great 50s twist as always.

Here's a great vintage pattern illustration by Simplicity.  The little peter pan collar and white gloves finish the look perfectly, so ladylike.
