At last I'm the proud owner of my very first FOL in Powder in a size 1. Having never had the opportunity to try one on before, I now realise that they do indeed run on the large side, so when I find/buy my next one - hopefully in either white or chalk, I will make sure I get a size 0 - not to say that I'm not thrilled with the one I have, just hindsight is a wonderful thing, no?!
Anyway, prior to buying one, those of you who read my blog here will know that I designed my very own, which I wanted to be more like a dress, so I made it a little longer, as I had a feeling that the original was a bit short - but it isn't, however, after spending a small fortune, time and effort - and a lot of sleepless nights wondering how to create this vision of beauty just from a few pictures, I realised when I took my own version on holiday with me, that it's just too big for me! The real bugbear is that it took me ages sourcing all the wonderful lace used in it, but hey-ho, there's absolutely no point in hanging onto somethting just to look at it in the wardrobe every now and then is there? So, with that in mind, I'm offering it for sale here!
For more details on my version, see the original posting here:
As you can see, when laid on top of one another, my version is indeed longer, there's not much difference in the width, but I would definitely say that mine is a size 2 for sure!
The lace I've used is fabulous - easily as good if not better quality than that used in the Odd Molly FOL and was very expensive-hence it makes it all the more difficult to let this one go, but like I say, there's no point in holding onto it, as I'd rather have someone else enjoy wearing this sweet little thing!
It is offered for sale at £85.00 (postage extra) via Paypal.
When you consider just how much an original one costs, I think it's a favourable price indeed!
