Birthday Celebrations + A New Dress

Yesterday was my birthday celebration day and it was loads of fun!  We went ice skating in the afternoon and then went out for dinner with some friends and family.  Ice skating was so much fun and hilarious to watch some people try and ice skate.  Corey's nephews were hilarious. Unfortunately, we didn't get many photos but here are a few from the day.....

And this is my new dress! It is made with Vogue 1094 which I bought to make a dress for my aunty's wedding.  This was meant to be my practice dress but now I am not sure if I will make it again as I found an awesome vintage dress that my parents got me for my birthday which I may wear instead.  The material is some sort of cotton blend from Spotlight.  I used the bodice pattern from the dress which I shortened then added an a-line skirt.  If I do make it again I think I will do a circle skirt next time.  Tonight we are at mum and dad's for dinner so there will be more birthday related photos tomorrow.

  4. Love the red spotty dress. It's really fun and bright and suites you down to the ground! I think a circle skirt would like really nice with the bodice.
