First fitting today of something which is called the toile. It’s the first time the dress has been made up so the toile is used to get the perfect fit and shape. Anne a very talented seamstress took time to pin and tuck here and there until Anne, Sarah Arnett and Leonie Claire were all happy with the fit. Even thought it was just made in lining fabric it looked stunning. Oh my goodness, nearly there. I have the beginnings of something perfect…..the most beautiful dress in the world!
