So pleased about this table cloth dress.
Yes, table cloth! I was so happy that the table cloth had enough for my dress and for a pocket square and bow tie for hubby as well! I thought we looked very good together yesterday if I might say so myself. *Selfbragging*
Elsa dress is my second Norwegian Constitution Day dress. Last year I made my Princess Kida dress. It was made from the Cambie dress from Sewaholic in white and navy blue rayon. I didn’t blog about that one so it’s only fair to do a little recap of it now.
The Constitution of Norway was signed at Eidsvoll on May 17 in the year 1814, making Norway 202 years old this year. As long as I have remembered I’ve always worn at least one of the Norwegian flag colors – red, white or blue. This year is no exception.
The dress this year is blue as you can see. Baby blue, but who cares… I love this dress, and the fact that it is made from a beautiful table cloth I found at my local second hand store. It was a pain to work with, it frayed all over the place and even overlocking it didn’t help! I found out that the the only way was to finish the seam by bias binding.
GRRRRRRR I’m a tiger! We started the day by having friends over for a champagne-breakfast and just relaxed all day in pretty clothes, fired up the barbecue at dinner time and lots of beer all through the day. Hooray hooray for Norway!
