Handmade Thursday

Handmade Thursday over at White Lily Green, has come around again and like other weeks my "Handmade" stash is low! The happy news is apart from one bridesmaid dress I am nearly finished, so maybe then I can enter into Handmade Thursday fully!

Today is also a slight cheat so forgive me!! Its not my Handmade Thursday but my mum's!
This is a picture of bridesmaid dresses she made for my brothers wedding in the 60's and yes I am the chubby child in the picture lol.

They were pale lemon and the top part and sleeves had very fine white with a small swiss dot pattern over the top, they had tiny bows on the back and was very pretty.

 She also made my sister in laws wedding dress which was so beautiful. My mum sadly passed away over 20yrs ago but I still miss her everyday. I don't think the 7 bridesmaid dresses I am making will look at good but I hope she would be proud I am carrying on the family tradition!

Happy Handmade Thursday!


  1. Your blog is nice. I will always visit here.

  2. What a lovely story. Great dresses and so great you're carrying on the tradition. x


  3. Aww that is so lovely! I wish I could follow my families tradition with needlework and with baking too, but I'm not that good at either! Must practise lots!
