What I wore this Saturday



So here is that dress! 
The elusive dress I keep talking about and not sharing


Finally today, I popped it on with my new pink belt and headed off to our local A & P show ( Agricultural and Pastoral Show )  The sun was shining and I felt great walking around in this vintage style.....especially sweetened by the fact that I got two compliments from complete strangers! 

Have you heard of  Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing? Well this is the Sweetheart Sundress pattern from her Gerties New Book for Better Sewing.....
  I really enjoyed learning new couture finishes, 
including a hand picked zipper. 



I already have the fabric waiting for a second version, this time with a bias cut circle skirt..... and I really need to tweak the bodice, as it's a bit large in the bust.....But other than that I'm stoked.
Though I will need to make a separate petticoat, as when the wind blows....the bike shorts underneath don't quite look the part!

And here's my little photo bomber....and she's still able to wear her "princess dress" I made for her two years ago!




Also are you coming along to the bloggers conference in April?


I'll be there! I'm really looking forward to meeting up with new friends and meeting more of you in person. 
For more details why don't you check out their blog here 


And Considering this dress took a long time to post about I'll be ticking off a few things here joining in for the first time with 
Wardrobe Wednesday - sorry Miriam I'll wear the gumboots next time!

Wow! Well done you! You look amazing and that fabric is all kind of wonderful. When I first saw the photo I thought it was a dress that I'd seen at my sisters work (WORLD). Lovely!

P.S. Glad to see someone other than me has little photo bombers!
