Happy Birthday Zoe! (and look, I made something)

Can you believe my gorgeous girl is now 11?
I blinked and she turned into a young lady, who is almost as tall as me.
I am so very proud of the person she is and the way she is growing up. I am so very happy that even though she is just about to hit the "mum your so embarrassing" stage I still get lots of cuddles. She is an amazing daughter and wonderful sister and such a generous person. I am lucky to have her in my life.
I know I am gushing but I can't help it.

So about the picture above.
My beautiful friend of thirty and a half years got married two weekends ago and asked Zoe to be her junior bridesmaid. She lives in England and her sister (pictured with Zoe) lives in England so dress hunting was rather hard so I made Zoe's dress. The fabric was sent from Melbourne and with much emailing the design was decided upon.
There were many dramas with me making this dress. I haven't made a dress in a long time and I completely stuffed up the invisible zipper,even though I watched many tutorials on YouTube. But  in the end we hid it with a big bow ;)
The final pattern is from Burdastyle 2/11 Magazine. With some tweaking from myself, my mother and mother-in-law it looked fantastic.
At the end of the day Zoe looked amazing, the bride looked incredible and it was a beautiful ceremony and reception.
