Peg Dress & Petone

As you may have guessed from my earlier post - today is Anzac Day in New Zealand, which is a day of remembrance for those we have lost in war time. I also means we get a public holiday.

Rich and I had a quiet day off - Rich had study and I was intending to do sewing, although to be honest I didn't get much done. I did wear this dress though that I finished making last weekend.

Here's a close up of the fabric - it has pegs all over it. It's kind of a random print, but kind of fun too. I means why not have a dress with pegs on it?
 Rich decided to take a few artsy shots of our building whilst we were taking these photos - as you can see the scaffolding is still up. I'm beginning to wonder if it will ever come down, I asked the property manager about it but their answer was at best vague.
In case you were wondering, I did manage to actually get out of the house today. Rich went up to the university library to study and I went to hang out with my friend Nankz. We had a coffee and then went to the beach in Petone.






It feels weird having to go back to work tomorrow after having Thursday off - I guess the up side is I only have one more working day and then its the weekend again.

That's a rugged looking beach, very different from the ones we have in Queensland! Gorgeous frock, love the print & the fit on you. Enjoy what's left of your day off. Xx

I love that print! Such a pretty dress, Trees. And your photos of the beach are lovely. Rich's shot of the scaffolding is great too. Always good to have a day off mid week! xxxx

That print is awesome. It looks great on you. Like Juliet, I thought they were Eiffel Towers at first glance.
