Vintage with a Modern Twist

I got The Pictures  from the photographer this week!  I compressed a few so I could include a hundred quite a lot in this blog post.

* Happy, happy sigh *

Do pour yourself a cup of tea, and enjoy with me:

Meeting at the local “Burger Bistro” a few hours before the Matric Farewell function, at first it was major awkwardness.

“So this is what you look like when you are not wearing a t-shirt…not bad.  Not bad at all”:

“Is it just me or does the earth feel all diagonal and strange when you dress up like this?”

“Don’t worry, I have your back.  Let me practice the chair-tipping so I won’t spill you and 30 metres of fabric on the floor at the posh venue tonight.”

“What have you done with your hair?”

“Business on the right, Party on the left!”

“What? You didn’t bring coins for the game machine?”

“There are coins a-plenty in this place, if you just know where to look!”

*Kids beginning to look more relaxed now. And please take a moment to appreciate the colour changes in that silk.  AND to appreciate the bow tie made from the reverse side of the lining fabric of her dress:

“Ek bring vir jou blomme
ek gee jou genot
ek leen jou my bicycle sonder n slot…”

And then everyone went back to the house to take some more wedding Matric Farewell pictures:

Including the dog:

And the cat:

And bits of the garden that the mother of the house wanted shown off:

And a few last whirls and twirls because that infamous tulle petticoat just had to feature on at least one photo:

My beautiful child.

Thank you so very much for giving me the opportunity to make this dress for you.

  1. Awwwwww that last line #tears. Go mamma!
    Aren’t teenagers the best? I feel they are very hard done by and underrated.
    Your girl looks amazing and also a round of applause for the shoes please?! What a wonderful memory you have helped her create.
    (I still have my dress that a friend made me for my ball in my last year of school. In fact I’m blogging about it for Slotober atm.)
