May blossom and weddings!

The month of May brings blossom and weddings to the calendar of life!



I was asked a while a go to make some corsages for some bridesmaids outfits. Their dresses are black so the Bride suggested using a bit of fabric that her dress is made of!

Its a perfect shade of cherry blossom!




I was very nervous about this job as it also involved making Cravats for the gentlemen which I had never made before!

With a little bit of recycling (purchasing an old cravat) I made a pattern and they turned out perfectly! A good tip for anyone faced with a similar dilemma.

Anyway, they have been wrapped and sent off to the bride, I hope she likes them!

Can't wait to see a picture.

You clever sausage Em...
I would also love to see photos of the cravats.. and am full of admiration for anyone who can sew. My efforts are still buried deep in class 5 of my old primary school..
Once saw a fabulous waistcoat at a wedding made from vintage Noddy material.
All best wishes for the open events this weekend.. They bring back such good memories of my first meeting with Mrs Roses and yourself..
