Easter Dress

I was planning on doing a lot of sewing over Easter weekend - but we ended up spending a lot of time out and about with friends, which was rad. However it resulted in a general lack of sewing being done. I did manage to make this frock though. 
It's another simple tunic dress made from my Sew La Tea Do book, I picked up the fabric at our last Wellington Sewing Bloggers Network meet up. Here's a close up of the fabric - I think its very pretty.
As you can see from these photos - the weeds have gotten worse rather than better in our car park. I wonder if the body corporate will ever sort out these weeds? Or they are hoping that the winter cold will kill them eventually?
Here's a silly photo - just for fun.
Last night after these photos were taken Rich and I headed out for a walk around town and took a couple of photos - I thought this one was very pretty.
I hope you're all having a great week so far xoxo

Love that frock and your cheeky face!
Much better to spend time with friends than sewing - that's why I haven't made a thing for ages! x

That fabric is lovely. The colours are very autumnal. I really like the sleeve length as well.

I think you have to grab time with friends when you can, then the sewing is always there for the quiet times, one thing I notice about you is you're always busy doing something! I love your dress with those boots and the little touches of red in your outfit. xx
