Flowers For J.

About a year ago, after seeing my FlowerPower T-shirts, my friend J. asked me if I could embellish a summer dress for her. I said yes, of course. Alas, with life being as unpredictable as it is, it has taken me a whole year to actually complete the mission. It's J.'s birthday today and I put all my efforts into finishing the task before midnight :)

I crocheted the flowers a while ago but I couldn't get round to the leafy bits... until last night!

Today it was all about ironing and sewing...

... and here you can see the result! The front...

... and the back :)

It's come out rather gorgeous, even if I say so myself... I sort of wish I could keep it...

Then again, there are always new dresses to turn into a summer garden, right?

A couple of hours ago I packed the dress in a brown box, added a birthday card, tied the box with a piece of string and attached a garden posy on top.

Then I hopped on my bike and personally delivered the package to the birthday girl.

So, once again, happy birthday, J.!
