Birthday Month: The Perfect Dress

You may remember me giving you a hint of my Birthday dress a while back, well it's finished (it has been for a while actually!) and I'm finally going to show it to you before it's big debut on my Birthday tomorrow. Here it is in all it's glory, made from vintage fabric from a vintage pattern, and utterly perfect for me :)

The finished dress!

Now allow me to show you some extreme close ups of some of the many yummy details I added to this dress, I really had so much fun making it!

The top stitched waist band detail

Shoulder detailing, underlining and hand sewn-down interfacings

Hand stitched sleeves (see the tiny stitches?) :)

Vintage style hand made button hole

Hand picked zipper

What do you think? I really hope you like it! I really spent my time making sure that this dress was perfect for me in every way and I've put a lot of hand work into it so I'm so excited to finally be able to wear it! I won't share any pictures of me in it until my actual Birthday, but I will tell you that I'm pairing it with some yummy pink roses for my hair and pink suede stilettos. I'm going to feel so girlie, I can't wait!

A taste of my final look...

Stay tuned for the big reveal of this dress very soon, I'm just so excited to wear it for my Birthday tomorrow!! Eek!
