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.

Princess Kida

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!
