Maxi Dress

I have finally finished my maxi dress. All in readiness to wear to dinner on friday night, for my 50th Birthday!
Claire and I are going to spend 2 nights at Ragdale Hall, in Leicestershire. What a lovely celebration.
We go up Thursday afternoon, have a look around, get use of the pool etc and then there is some sort of evening class after our meal. On Friday, the big day for me, we will get breakfast in our room!! what luxury. We have a facial in the morning and a massage in the afternoon. I also have an appointment with thier alternative therapy doctor who will go through my medication with me, and see if there is anything that I can do to compliment my treatment that may help me. (May sound odd for a birthday, but if it is going to help me in the future, then I hope it will be well worth it.).
We get another evening there, and breakfast in bedroom again on Saturday before checking out. I think Claire has another treatment booked, and I will use the swimming pool before we come home.

We have organised some childcare for DGD so I am so excited.
Here is a couple of pictures of the dress I made yesterday and today.

I am not very thrilled with the zip, its supposed to be concealed, but I had quite a battle understanding the pattern. Maybe I will re do it when I get back. But meanwhile I have something to feel special about wearing.


  1. This is faboo- I love a maxi dress.
    50? you certainly do not look it.
    Have a wonderful time.

  2. Thanks.
    We had a brilliant time. I really felt like I was being completely spoilt with being pampered etc. The best break in many a year.!
