425 £

Oh no. I'm weeping not only a bit but very much.




I did not get this dress. I had already planned to hang it on my wall next to my bed, waiting to be worn. I was at sea when the bidding ended so I didn't really stand a chance. But, but but, the price of 425 GBP, almost 550 euros, would have been a bit too heavy anyway even though I was prepared to go quite close to that.

Well, now I can just go buy myself that new camera instead. And I'm going on some trips later on this summer so I guess it is better this way, even though I had planed a great future for the dress and me...

(My dear mother said my cats propably would have been tearing the dress if it'd been on the wall anyway. And I'd propably have spilled red wine on it the first time I had it on too. Let's just say so and I'll feel a lot better.)

Perhaps this will have to be one for the 'make it yourself' pile.

maybe it was better this way: otherwise you would have to force yourself to get in a situation where you could use it (and soon) and therefore end up married to some jerk. (yup, easy, the guys in this country are soooo eager to marry)... =).

Good drawing, and nice to see one again. Long time no drawings!

'Tis a lovely dress and sorry to hear you didn't get it. But I'm sure you could always have someone sew/make a similar dress for you and it might not even be as expensive as the price it sold for.

Super Kawaii Mama : Of course! I'll just pick up some needle and thread and better get started ! :D

Lil' puch ; yes. let's hope so...

Ina : THis was a relaly quick drawing but I think it turned out quite nice! So you all go and click it bigger now please! I've felt a bit guilty for not making any drawings lately, I have a pile of plans waiting for me in my notebook...

And hmm, about hte marriage thing. There is a candidate you know ;)

Don't sweat it : Yes, I actually have an order in for a designer / seamstress friend of mine. And it will be a bit cheaper yes and at least I will be sure it fits!

Oh no :( But on the plus side think about all the money you saved, now you can buy something just as nice in the shops!
