It's time for another recent make - yes its another Laurel dress, but this version is made with fun anchor fabric and has frilly cuffs! Fancy.
The first outfit posts in out new house were taken in our courtyard and these have been taken on the balcony outside our bedroom that overlooks the city - our lives are awesome.
I've made this dress a number of times before, but this is the first time I've added the gathered cuffs and I actually think they are pretty cute. There's another version of the dress with pockets, so maybe I will add them next time.
The view of the city sure is pretty from up here - especially late in the day (these photos were taken Friday after work).
I've given the dress its name as the fabric is covered with cute little
anchors and its a bit different from the typical anchor prints that you
can get. It's from our local craft store, Made Marion
You can even see the the tallest building in Wellington from our deck, its called the Majestic Centre. I used to work in here, but I'm glad I don't anymore as its a bit of a downer when you can ALWAYS seen your work, even when you're hiking in the town belt.
As for the name of the dress, it obviously comes from the fact that its covered in anchors *duh* but I also named it after one of my favourite songs from a pretty amazing New Zealand band - enjoy!
