Goodbye Winter...

A post a month it would seem I'm doing now! I could give you excuses (busy, blah blah, busy again, blah blah) but who cares, I'm here now :)

I still have several 'winter' outfits to post, but in Sydney, Spring really has pretty much sprung. It's time to take out the summer dresses and shoes and pack away the tights. I'm a bit sad about this though, I'm not quite ready for another hot and humid Sydney summer. If it can stay just like today, I'll be more than happy.

The dress I'm wearing is the one pattern, six bloggers dress I made just before we left for Vancouver back in June (which my goodness, was so so long ago now! I'll bug David for that post he's going to write too by the way). The cardigan is vintage and the belt is a thrifted one from Vancouver.

I've not touched my sewing machine either since we got back from Vancouver. I have a Sorbetto blouse cut out and ready to sew, but I've just not felt like doing anything that involves sewing. This is not a good thing considering I have several summery things I need to make for my summer wardrobe. I've been very good these last few months and have not bought a single item of clothing, new or otherwise - I wonder how long I can keep it up...?

So what have you been up too? I need to catch up!!

  1. Oh, we're only getting closer and closer to winter.. That is a beautiful shade of green, I really like it. I haven't done much sewing, either, but I just finished a top with a 50s pattern and I love it. At first I thought I was too late finishing it because it's quite a summery fabric, but who cares! Liberty prints for the win. :)

  2. I love this whole outfit! Very winter-esque. While reading your post I was so confused and then realized that your seasons are backwards from mine. I'm in New York and it's about to get colder and head into winter and I'm just pulling out the tights and boots.
