5th August 2010: Officially in progress! As it's my birthday today and I've recieved some money as a present, I've decided to start this by buying a wig off eBay! It's a gorgeous pumpkin-ish colour and it's really curly, so I can't wait for it to arrive. I've also recieved some vouchers for my favourite fabric store, so I'll be going out later to buy some fabric as well. :)
As mentioned earlier, I ended up going out to the local fabric store to spend my vouchers. I found the perfect shade of pink on a roll, but unfortunately the fabric was slightly see-through and so I had to buy twice the amount so I could double the fabric up for when i make the dress. I also got some nice white chiffon for the shoulders, and some pink ribbon for the tie around the middle. I'm looking forward to working on it!
My boyfriend has said he will take me to some garden centres to look for fake flowers to use in the hair, so hopefully that search will be successful too. :)
