It was a perfect Canberra day, warm, sunny, clear and there were lots of roses blooming at the old parliament house rose garden.
The dress is made with navy guipure sequinned lace lined with latte silk satin and silk organza from tessuti. The bodice uses the elisalex from by hand London with a pencil skirt. The belt is velvet, fastened with press studs and covered with a purchased large cream rose hairclip. My daughter and I made the bouquets of roses, gerberas and hydrangeas picked up from the Canberra farmers market by my darling husband that morning as well as some sweet peas from our garden.
