    1. It’s lovely isn’t it? Buying the second hand ones can be hit or miss, but they are very cheap for the amount of fabric you get. This just blends with the other colours so well. I really enjoyed this [apart from the organza lol]

  1. A fantastic job well done, you put yourself through it to get the ‘ensemble’ together The colours and fabric are gorgeous. I love the sari. As I was reading through the various sections I thought about the Craftsy course – money well spent for you, (I never did finish it!!!)

    1. Thanks! That Craftsy course is the only one I persevered with, and actually used in any way. most of the rest sit unfinished. I was put off at first by the grotty dress she makes in it, but the techniques were an eye opener. And silk organza! I’d never used it before that, now I panic if my stock runs low

  2. Awesome! I’ve now raced through all five parts to this story – well done, you! It’s an amazing, absolutely lovely outfit. Beautifully made with gorgeous fabrics. She looks really good, and I love the whole idea of making it reusable (I wore my folk costume, with the bridal extras – I’ve never liked the idea of a “use once dress”).

    1. Use once is naughty…but it happens doesn’t it? I think that Jax will get lots of use out of these. The pink top is very much the kind of thing she loves to wear, the skirt is very re-usable. Even the coat will be nice over jeans for a fancy casual evening out

  3. It’s astonishing DF! What a lot of work but what an amazing creation. You did so well with the draping. My fave bit is the evil polyester organza sleeves. They almost look like insect wings. And as you say the elements will be great separate too.

  4. This was definitely worth the wait. I have been dying to see this outfit since the first post (thanks for the mammoth posting frenzy BTW). Your friend looks absolutely gorgeous and very boho. I looks like a great wedding and a totally gorgeous wedding ensemble. Lucky Jackie having such a talented friend. Xx

  5. You are a great friend! Not only did you make her look wonderful, but you put so much care into all the details. I don’t know that I have any friends I like enough to do all that rolled hemming… 😂

    1. Not exactly feet up-work is horrendous, very stressful, and I need to sew to relax. Made a dress last night though! I still have a small pile of stuff I cut out for summer sewing…what summer? Exactly!
