On Saturday morning I did a bit of shopping in town and went to Recycle Boutique as its been a while since I've had a chance to look around and I picked up a couple of new things.
First up is a vintage swim dress which I am pretty excited about - especially since I'm off to Vanuatu next week. This is so perfect for our holiday.
I also picked up this cute vintage shirt dress for the office - 100% polyester baby!Portrait Gallery of New Zealand with some friends and followed that up with a trip to the Wellington Underground Market. This market sometimes has special theme markets and last weekend the them was crafting, so I managed to pick up this rather cute novelty fabric with pegs all over it - I got three metres of this fabric! Now I just have to work out what to do with it.
Later on in the afternoon I went to a Wellington Pink Ladies event, a High Tea at Martha's Pantry which is a very cute little tea room. They have so many lovely vintage things and the high tea was so dainty - I also had the most incredible tea. It was so fun, I hope I can go back there soon.
But I did manage to complete this and I thought I'd share it with all of you now - although you're not getting an action shot as its too cold to prance about in a sundress!
Here's a close up of the fabric - its strawberries and super cute!
This is another dress from my Simple and Chic sewing book and its called the "Indian Summer Dress" - speaking of that book, I recently added some of my projects to the "Simple and Chic Sewing" Flickr group and I got some positive feedback from Christine Haynes which caused all kinds of geeky excitement! You can see the Flickr group here.
I hope you're all having a fabulous week!
