Weird Shapes but a sweet pinnie

Hello again! No, it's my Husbie's scooter! I don't ride that kinda bikes! Only pushies!

Back in January I made this dress for the Sew Weekly challenge, the Unrequited Love Theme, and at the same time, I followed the bodice pattern and cut out this blue fabric my Mum had given me. The skirt part it basically a large rectangle sewn together, and once I realised I'd made the bodice a little bigger, it didn't need a zip!

As the material is light cotton (I think Mum got it overseas in maybe Vietnam?) I'd made it thinking I'd be able to wear it in the really hot days of the Melbs summer, but then they frankly went away. It's been so cold (although yesterday got hot again) and I've worn tights too many times!

At least I can wear my Melissa Troupe's in summertime! AND, I'm using up more of the blue stash!

Hope you're having a great week! I'll post my Sew Weekly Theme (Seeing Red - for Val Day) tomorrow! We got some GREAT night time photos, so they're pretty cool!



  1. Very sweet! Go the scooter photo shoot too. Cute!

    Please send some of that cool weather this way. I was not made for Summer. :)

  2. I like it, they look like big blue candycorn.

  3. Love the pinny but omg those shoes are epic! If I wasn't saving for europe I would buy them asap.

  4. Kat is so right about the shoes. I want them!!

  5. I love this dress, and the photo!
    I'm a bit jealous of your ability to wear tights right now, it's sweltering here! Have a cool day!

  6. Gorgeous print and I love your shoes!!


Thanks for being awesome and a total darling, leave a message!
