Sunny Day Dress

I decided to by myself the book Sew La Tea Do as a Christmas present, I've looked at this book so many times but I just couldn't justify the price. However, when I found a slightly damaged version on sale for half price at Whitcoulls I couldn't leave it behind!

This is the first project from the book - the "Sunny Day Dress" it's a bit sack like so you really need to wear a belt or a fitted cardy over top to give it some shape. It does have pockets though - fancy!Yesterday was another beautiful day - I keep hearing that rain is on the way but no sign of it yet!

This photo was taken when we went on an afternoon walk in the Botanical Gardens - here's a few more sunny day photos.
