We're having a blossom fix at the moment. When it first appeared, my little friend had us all picking petal confetti from the ground and throwing it wedding-style for a photo opportunity. Easier said than done, since I've not yet worked out the shutter speed option on the camera!
Now it's starting to fall from the trees, the pavements look like they're covered with pink snow. The streets of London are looking beautiful but I'm not so sure the street cleaners would agree. But thinking of ways to preserve the blossom for just that bit longer I made a little dress for you know who.
I bought some Japanese sakura fabric a while ago and, with the help of this lovely book, made a simple halter dress with elasticated back. It looks fun with a plain white tee underneath; in fact I love it so much that if I have my way, madam will still be wearing it when she's twelve. But hopefully with jeans underneath by then!
I hope you're having a lovely, relaxing and sunny (?) weekend.
