Here's the blossom element in my dress... I added some soft (curtain) tulle underneath (and lined the bodice with some extra lining material from the stash) to make the dress extra special, and kinda like those little Gumnut Babies (when they wore clothes!).
But also, did you know about the Sewing World Gone Mad? Yes it's gone completely mad (LOLZ, if you want Melbourne TV ads over the years, you'd know what I was talking about!) and Kathleen has rounded up a huge crew for FREE PATTERN MONTH! OMG!
I'd get into it if I were you! When I get a minute on the weekend, I'm going to spend HOURS looking through everyone's tutorials! YAY!
