OOTD: Strawberry Shortcake Dress
I made it for our trip to Vanuatu and it's another pattern from my all time favourite pattern/sewing book Chic and Simple Sewing - I think this is one of the best buys I have ever made in terms of a craft/sewing book, I use it SO much!
Anyway it is a fairly simple dress with a full skirt, I really do need a fancy petticoat to wear underneath to give it some volume.
After yesterday - I was determined to bring some "sunshine" into my life today and the only way I could think of doing that was wearing a summer dress. Also I did feel a little sad that a dress I'd put so much effort into making was wasting away in the cupboard - I decided I needed to "make it work" for winter!
Shortly we are off to have some delicious Korean food and then we're going to meet our friend Nankz to do some planning for the New Zealand International Film Festival - have a great Friday night xoxo
