After the wife and I were invited to a very special little one’s christening I knew exactly who to contact for the perfect gift.
I had met Julie of vintageattitude at the Southbank Carboot and having followed her blog for a while it was great to meet her in person! I walked away a very happy lady with a home-made dress of my own.
But what the wife and I really fell in love with was the Children’s clothes she had on sale. I knew she was the lady to call and so I asked if she could make a dress fit for a princess to celebrate baby Olivia’s special day.
Julie and I made plans for the dress via email and before I knew it the finished article was in the post and on its way. I was excited to see it but found myself nervous at the same time! It’s funny how much harder it can be to buy or create gifts for other people. I just really wanted it to be something extra special, something she could keep when she was older, something different and original. I was not disappointed, Julie did a fantastic job, not that it was ever in doubt.
When I opened the post I was in love. She had used 1970s fabric and 1940s buttons along with the most important specification, Disney princesses!
The brief was – a vintage princess, very girly.
I think it’s safe to say she achieved this, I hope you agree.
So as I wrapped this for the big day I thought about how lucky I am to have met a talented lady. I also loved the card she sent with the dress.
It’s my birthday soon, thinking I may order a dress for me….
