Ask, and ye shall receive

Okay peeps, you asked for it - here are some pictures of the Booty Dress. Don't say I didn't warn you!!

But first, here is a photo of me in my birthday suit .... as it were. Note all the straight lines! This is MUCH more my usual attire than the curvy curves of the booty dress you'll see below.

Please take particular note of my new bugundy knitted vesty thing, which my mum made me at my request, and which I absolutely LOVE.

It fits perfectly, it's the ideal trans-seasonal item for Melbourne, and the colour is beautiful. Here I've paired it with a simple white cotton top underneath, and a black patent belt to cinch it in at the waist.

I've also accessorised it with an amazing brooch The Headmistress made for me as a surprise birthday present.

Isn't it incredible?? She did this by HAND, people, by HAND. She has a precision of touch which I can only aspire to. Please zoom in on this photo and appreciate it in all its wonder. It has three different layers of purple, and gorgeous beads sewn in around the middle individually. If I'd tried to make this it would have turned out a bunched, unbalanced, uneven horror of a thing.


But now for the piece of resistance - the Booty Dress! Here is is in all its glory. I'm sticking out the booty, just for you.









And Grimth wanted to be a part of it as well....








And so did Podder. Honestly, you can't do a thing in this house without a cat coming over to investigate .....

OH.MY.GOD. I absolutely LOVE it! It's beautiful!! And suits you so well... I think before you go on talking about your non-existant booty you should post a picture of you in your amazing wedding dress. Yours is a figure well worth showing off and one all women would envy!

That really does give you booty!
Do you think your mum would take orders?

It suits you!! It's the same at my house. I was out by the pool photographing some button broaches and along came Leila. Last night I was trying to embroider and along came Looey and Leila and Coconut, all three taking upmost of the double bed so I only had a small amount of space. Oh well, you love them anyway! At least they're not kittens anymore and can't be bothered playing with the thread!!
