Latest First Holy Communion Dress.

I have just been asked to make a First Holy Communion dress and veil for a young lady who is about to receive Our Blessed Lord for the first time in February. It is made from a pure cotton broderie anglaise type fabric, but is lined in the bodice and skirt - I think she'll need some thermal underwear too though! It was a bit of a rush to get it in the post, so I didn't have time for many quality photos. Hope I get some sent from the big day!

I always feel it is a real privilege to be able to make beautiful garments for such a special occasion.
