Racing Introduction :-)
Recently I went to my very first proper horse race and loved it!
I was a bit worried that I didn't have anything suitable to wear, so in a (slight) panic I made a dress the day before and it turned out pretty well :-) (Phew!!)
I used a cotton sateen fabric with a tiny bit of stretch and slightly modified one of my original dress patterns (to make it a bit more modest, hehe) I also made a matching Fascinator and handbag (but I haven't photographed them yet :-)
Black Caviar run. And we were not disappointed! Wow! She's so amazing and stunning. I actually got goosebumps when I saw her race!
We're going to see her run again in a few weeks and I'm really excited! But then I have to think of another dress to make for myself to wear.... For a crazy moment last night I considered crocheting myself a dress... Then, today when I tried to start it to figure out a design, I came to my senses and realised that would be INSANE.... So instead, I'm going fabric shopping next week :-) I may just end up making another dress using the same pattern as the one pictured above, but in a different fabric :-) I know, lazy... But it's so easy to make!!
Have you done something exciting for the first time recently? Share in the comments!
