Forget the Christmas party season, last night started Pillowcase Dress Party Season!
Dave works at Mindshare in London, and after he sent round an email about my challenge, some of the Mindshare girls were keen to have a dress making party. Sarah organised the people and the necessities:
And I had the oh-so-tough task of buying the bits and pieces and sparkly things for the dresses. I went nuts on Walthamstow Market!
Here are some snaps from throughout the night.
I wore my Clover trousers – regular readers will remember how much pain and anguish these trousers caused me, but after a week of no contact we were back on speaking terms and I made a few more alterations to make them fit better. Now I love them!
Those that didn’t want to use machines decorated dresses that I had already made. This is what we’ll be doing at the Drink, Shop & Do party on 6th December so come along and help out then if you’d like!
This dress was a joint effort as it was the one that Dave made, which then got decorated last night (after we explained that it would all be OK, and his dress wouldn’t be ruined).
Rather than put even more photos here, I have added all the completed dress photos to the Pillowcase Dress Gallery, with the picture of who made them as well.
I had an amzing night, and am so grateful for all the help and support the Mindshare girls gave me – especially as they’d never met me before! I brought home 10 new dresses, and a few more are just being finished off before they’re handed over.
That brings the new total of dresses to 40 – only 12 to go to complete the challenge! I am thinking I might have to up the challenge to 100 dresses by Christmas instead…
Thanks for a great evening girls x
