Do we feel the weather is sufficiently mild for me to show my latest make? I don't want to render anyone an unwelcome return of the chills but the temperature is being good to us this week and I'm hoping that's an end to the cold.
Yep, it is indeed a second linen dress .. and more neckline experimentals too. It has the same three quarter sleeves and easy a-line shape of this dress but a wide yoke which I'm really rather liking. The fabric, which isn't so easy to pick out from afar, has the tiniest of variegated blue checks on a pale blue background, really fresh and Spring/Summer-like .. ok, so probably not what you would want to put on today after all, but close your eyes and imagine those lighter, brighter days, the warmth on your skin, coat firmly back in the wardrobe. But you know, never more so than with this post have I kicked myself for forgetting yet again to iron a dress before modelling it. Drat!
Anyway, our Half Term is happening this week so I'll be taking the time off to entertain the kiddos. In the meantime, thank you all for your comments on my 1950s cushions, you're all most kind. Also for the encouragement about my impending news and I've got to say I love, love, love Karen's idea of having a cyber opening evening over a glass of vino. Can you imagine that? What a hoot that would be!
Have a great week, everyone.
