Mama I made it!

Sunday was the debut of my "Cath Kidston" outfit. Thanks to everyone who showed interest in seeing the finished result. It really gingered me to make it happen. It has a loose, cropped top with bell sleeves, paired with a high-waisted, gathered skirt. 

I can't lie, I was feeling myself on the way to church. I was really proud of my work. As we were walking towards the entrance, I saw three women clad in white garments, coming from a celestial church somewhere. The first two were old, mature looking ladies. The last was much younger and as she passed me, she called "Fine babe!". I turned back in shock and then decided to take the compliment with a pinch of salt. 

After the service, hubby helped me to take photos. From there I went to the Cocktails and Dresses event at Intercontinental Hotel. It was very cool, I'll write about that later. I had plenty of time to go through the pics and choose which to post online. At first I thought it would be easy with so many to choose from. But as I dissected each photograph I saw more and more things I would change about my clothes. By the end of it I didn't want to post again!

That evening, I mentioned it to hubby. He just chuckled. "That's the difference between men and women. You second guess yourselves too much. Didn't you even have a stranger compliment you? The design is fine, but there's always room for improvement." 

I smiled. It's true. It might not be the best, but it's mine. We should take pride in our work, knowing that we are on a journey. 

So, what do you think? How does it compare to the original design? What could I do different next time?
