Summer dress

My latest design for summer, (tucked into knickers! But at least model is wearing some!) Belt is held on with a button sewn at the back, button hole through the centre of belt - - works well, and no belt hoops needed.

You Might Be My Lucky Star.

I'm getting all 80's on yo arse!
A belted, boat-neck, shirt dress for the little one.
Made with vintage ornagey red cotton.
Looks fab on.
Term 4 started in NSW today.
Time has positively flown in this house I tell you!

Upcycling, it's the only cycling I do

Breathing life into some 60's tea-towels, mixed with an Ikea fabric.

Just Lately

This is our sage plant, I had no idea that sage had such pretty flowers!
They look like purple snap-dragons.
Really yummy with browned butter and gnocchi.
(The leaves, not the flowers).
And some crafting to show, a couple of long, flowy summer skirts for a Friend's daughter, part of a barter system that I have with a lovely girl who runs a gymnastic camp in the school hols. School holidays have been fun so far, lots of out and about, not enough time at home. Today we had a visit from this adorable lady and her little girl! One of the few people I know in real life who blogs, and we are virtually neighbours!!
After coffee and catch-up we popped into Vinnies,
Where I had the awful realisation that I hadn't
put knickers on Miss P, who was happily sitting amongst the
toys with her legs crossed, I hastily bought a pair of
pink shorts and slipped them on her, before heading
off for some sushi. I can't believe Little P didn't notice,
actually, she was too busy playing to even care!

Finches at Taronga Zoo
We are are just popping down to Melbs for the weekend.
Going to see my work in the window for Echo's Lost.
Curated by this wonderous girl: Page 63 of Your Manual
Also some of the usual fun stuff one does is Melbourne, like shopping and eating,
and seeing my Nieces, oooh, very excited about that!
These Finches remind me of us 3, the one at the top is so Big D,
he can sleep anywhere, which I'm quite envious of really.
