A rose by any other name might be a giveaway...

I whipped this little tulle flower up to go on my black dress, which has a bit of a plunging neckline, and being on the wrong side of 40 I reckon I just cannot go around flashing my very sensible bra to Mr Busy's work colleagues, so decided I need a bit of something to cover myself up with. I saw a really cute floppy tulle flower the other day stuck on a dress. It was bigger than the one I have made, so I might give that a bit of a go as well.
I am very proud of myself. Not for my sewing prowess or anything, but the fact that I made do, and didn't go out and buy something to wear tonight. Its Mr Busy's Christmas do, dinner thing. I know! Don't even talk to me about having a work do on a school night, and a Monday at that! It's at Villa Maria, which I am interested to see, as I haven't been there before, which is shameful because it's hardly at the other end of the country!
Mental Note to Self: GET OUT MORE!

I am thinking I might put up a wee tutorial for this, because I just sort of made it up as I went along. What do you reckon? Although you lot are all so crafty and clever that you probably don't need a run down on how to make it. Let me know, and I might even put you all in the draw and do a wee giveaway. Don't know what yet! I tell ya, I'm livin on the edge. Doing giveaway's willy nilly and not even planing for it!
(Small disclaimer - I am going in for eye surgery to remove a cataract from my blind eye next week so you will have to forgive me if I am not on to it immediately. Not sure of the outcome yet, as the cataract is just part of another problem with this pesky eye of mine, but will try and get on to it as soon as. Assuming I get some comments that is!!!)
Anyhoo must go and put on the war paint for Mr Busy's do.
will See you later!

Ooh, pretty.
I'm terribly bad at crafty things, though I'm sure I'd be able to follow a tutorial! (Hopefully it's simple.)

Oooo yeah - a tutorial definitely. I have a linen dress I made for school that has the same problem... last thing I need is to feel like I'm flashing my goodies at 12 year old boys!

Another yes for a tutorial! I would love to make some of these...but wait until you feel up to it. Ouch eye surgery=not fun :(

I think it looks gorgeous on the dress. Would love a tutorial on how to make due course, when you've recovered from your surgery. My goodness, first your teeth, now your eye - you're having a run of it. Good luck - I'm sure it will be worth it.
