Grey, Green & Candyfloss Pink.

As well as being blessed with a creative Grandma who knits for me pretty much on demand (I'm going to set up a Call me Lucille sweat shop!!) I am also lucky to have a Mum who can knock up a dress at the click of a finger. 
This particular dress took some last minute alterations, arguing over the colour of the material/buttons/piping and a spot of moonlight sewing. All to be ready for Christmas day! 
I think it's pretty special, especially as I got to see it start off from scraps of material, to a full blown 1940's number. Thanks Mum!
We sourced the buttons from USA, and finally came to an agreement on Grey & Green. 

Inka was at my feet the whole time I was posing. If any of you have read my interview with BooBoo Kitty Couture, you will know that all my photos are taken on a 'self timer'. (For those of you that haven't read it, I will repost as my next entry.)  As soon as she hears the three countdown beeps, she's there, with her best face on. 
Can you see her new hairdo? Candyfloss pink, just like her Mama!

Love as always, Lucille xx
