Wedding reception outfit.

We went to a lovely wedding yesterday, it was outside in a paddock and the weather stayed fine until late afternoon but then the heavens opened! This is my handmade outfit.

tracy33For the shrug I used the Cake Cocoa rif pattern and some of our lovely cream lace fabric.

The fabric is from an Amy Butler range that is no longer available. We are offering 20% off Colette patterns this month, the discount code is in Love Sewing magazine, I have contributed withan article on my favourite Colette patterns.

Love SewingAs I said the weather didn’t stay great so I ended the night in different foot wear!
