You know when you have a million things to do but you don’t want to do any of them, so instead you do something else entirely? Yeah, last Friday I did that. (I told you I am the queen of procrastinating!) Reuben had a work function that evening and though I should have been packing for our move, I stayed up til 2am sewing myself a new dress. Logical, no?
Like the pink floral frock I made (and a couple of others I have made since) it’s loosely based on a pattern from this book but mostly just improvised. Unlike my previous dresses, this version is fully lined. It’s made from two thrifted sheets; a blue, white and lemon stripy one for the outside and a plain white one for the lining. The lace collar was also thrifted. I found a little bundle of these collars in an op-shop a while ago so you can expect to see them popping up on more dresses in the future!
So, now I have a new frock but we still have very few boxes packed. Reubs and I are moving this weekend so for the next little while we are going to be rather busy! This is approximately our 37 trillionth move but it never really gets any easier. Moving just isn’t much fun!
I hope everything is sunshiney in your world? Sending you lots of happy thoughts for the week ahead!
PS Looking at these pictures I have realised I really should have ironed the dress before photographing it! Sorry about that…
