Racing Introduction :-)

Hello friends!
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 :-)
 The main reason we went to the races was to see the magnificent Black Caviar run. And we were not disappointed! Wow! She's so amazing and stunning. I actually got goosebumps when I saw her race!
You know when you watch Usain Bolt run a race and it sort of looks like he's just going for a jog to the shops to get the Sunday paper and all the other runner are just about exploding in an attempt to get even vaguely near him? Well, that's what it's like to watch Black Caviar run! Love it!!

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!
