(L-R Katherine's daughter and my daughter, Meg)
My youngest sister was married in December. She invited her four nieces to be flower-girls, much to their delight. My mother sewed my brother's daughter's dress. My younger sister sewed her daughter's dress and Katherine and I each sewed dresses for our daughters. I think we all managed to pull this off magnificently given that we are spread out between Victoria, South Queensland, Far North Queensland and the Northern Territory.
Aren't the tiers and bodice backs just lovely!
