Great work, your top stitching is impeccable.
Beautiful outfit - love your trench coat dress! It is sad when they leave, I sometimes see my oldest (almost 19) as the face she had when she was 4!
Very pretty outfit. I can relate to the sadness, you want them to do such amazing things but your heart is sad to see them go. good luck to her and to you. Lots of sewing will probably make you feel a better :).
Your daughter is right. You do look nice :) Love the pleated sleeve detail on the trench.
You do indeed look nice - no need to buy me a laptop either!
That is just French chic spot-on! I hope that you had lunch outside so that lots of passerbys could see how chic you are.
Oh, wow, this is just lovely! Very well worth the expensive belt buckle, indeed. It must be very sad when they leave home :( I hope you're not too down over the next few days... go out and buy yourself something nice.
You look great!! This way of combining casual trench coat is so wonderful and encouraged to show how they all wear our clothes sewn by ourselves. Genial!
You look excellent. I love the stripes underneath. It looks so professional. Our daughters are on their way.........celebrate !
Great coat! It looks fabulous on you. In order to ease the transition of the child leaving home, you simply MUST buy yourself lots of fabric, patterns and sewing books!
Great coat - very chic. Looks like a perfect layer as we slowly head into Autumn. Love the stripes.
You do look nice! Great coat/dress!
THis looks lovely on you. Inspired by yours, I traced the pattern off with a view to making one in a stripe that seemed perfect. Then I chickened out. Maybe this weekend ...
Lovely! Very cool outfit, and such great details. I can imagine that your daughter going off to college is a rather momentous and sad experience. Is there an upside - lots of visits to Melbourne?
Beautiful dress! Just this trench coat-dress with ruffles at the sleeves that Burberry has in its current collection.
Great outfit Gail. It's really special when DD's think so. Congratulations to your DD on her new beginning. C
Love the outfit --- it is very chic! Congratulations to your daughter --- going off to college is a big event. But no worries, she'll be visiting home often!
Great outfit....and congratulations on your DD. Great one
Dear Gail; I just had to reply, thank you for your sweet comment! I was not quite a child bride, married at 22. I am 25 in that picture with my eldest son. When I was a teenager I hated looking young for my age, nowadays I don't mind so much...!
This looks great on you Gail. Cool! as the kids say.
