Appreciation post for my amazing mum.

So about 4-5 years ago I bought a dress for £40 because I really liked it. I liked it for the design, just not on me. It was about 3 sizes too big anyways. So it’s been sitting in my wardrobe for years. I’ve thrown out all my other dresses (only had about 3 anyways) because I knew I would never wear them. I’ve been out as transgender to my family for a year or so now, so I thought it was clear for me to stop hiding and throw everything away that I had just got in order to hide behind. 

So my mum, being as amazing and supportive as she is, made me a waistcoat and tie from that dress so I can finally wear the design that I liked and feel comfortable. She had never made either before and tried so hard to make these for me, and I think they are amazing. She is currently working out how to make a bow-tie from the left over material because I love bow-ties too. 

I would love to show her how amazing this is and that it isn’t just me who thinks so.
