First a big Thank You to the CD Sunday team for inviting me to contribute as a Guest Designer for the next 3 months. I try and participate in their challenge regularly and am delighted to contribute.
The challenge for today, chosen by Carol is "Gorgeous Gowns "
When I received the challenge guidelines I decided to make a Thank You card for my new daughter-in-law's work colleagues who helped her achieve a 50's look for her wedding day. I believe this is called a swing and jive dress now, and is what she wore with a huge petticoat giving a full skirted appearance. She looked stunning, when they decided to have a very small wedding they didn't stick to any traditions at all.

I found paper piecing this digi quite easy apart from the tiny bows on the shoulder which were really fiddly.
