Wow! Thank you so much everyone! We got back late yesterday evening and I followed a message in my emails but I was too tired to string 2 words together. I can't quite believe it with the other lovely entries. I did wear the dress while we were away - without the jacket and the belt - and I got one or two compliments which was nice. I thought you might like to see it. It isn't a very good photo I don't think - OH looks as if he is preventing me from keeling over and it highlights some defects in the stitching/pressing, but I shall gloss over that!

Lovely photo Greybird, glad that you have an enjoyable holiday and now you have a lasting memento of this holiday and of you wearing your lovely dress - so well worth all the effort you put into making this.
