Wedding Day Willies

Dolly paused in the shadow of the old church. Her time had come. Her moment of glory, the time of entry into the hallowed sphere of matrimony. Ronald was waiting in there expectantly.

So why did she feel uncertain?
It was a little crawly feeling starting down in her chest and creeping up into her head.
She paused dramatically, hand upon the handle of the door, and the feeling hightened.

Really, she wasn't sure about that beard. And he didn't like kittens. That was rather serious.

Maybe today was a better day for baking shortcake? She smiled happily at how becoming she would look baking strawberry shortcake in white lace and silk.



This dress is divine. I wish I had found it a few years ago. (Although I definately wouldn't have fitted the wood-fired pizza or handmade raspberry tarts into it!).
A tiny fit, size 6 to small 8 (Aus/UK : size 4-6 US), with petite lace bust and long sleeves, throat-high lace with underlying sweetheart silk neckline. It has a full silky white skirt with train (loop catch to gather up at the back) falling from the waistline. It is in amazing original condition from the seventies. I have seen a few dresses around from this era, and this darling is honestly the best I have come across... no garish flounces or trills or too much lace... just sweet, elegant and totally perfect.
I can't wait for some little lady to fall in love with this dress and take her to the altar... the only condition of sale is I must have a photo! (Please oh please.) You can view the babe here.
