Oh, bollocks...

So, some friends of mine are getting married, and they've asked SG to be flower girl. Lovely! I don't even need to buy a foolishly expensive and impractical frou-frou dress for her, as the wedding will have a medieval theme and they've asked that she be dressed in a blue and yellow Renaissance outfit. Easy!

Now, these friends have been talking about getting married for years, and actually set the date more than six months ago, so in my head their wedding day is AGES AWAY.

Except that it's not, obviously, it's this Saturday. And no, I haven't started making that dress...

EEP.

Anyway, I now have a bodice cut out of blue cotton drill, and a chemise cut out of rather fabulous cream-coloured linen printed with butterflies. I'm waiting on Blondie to bring some yellow drill home so I can cut out a skirt, which will be box-pleated and attached to the bodice to make a quick-and-dirty waist-seamed kirtle. This would all be so much easier if I was allowed near the sewing machine...
