Hi, we are going to get snow in New South Wales this week - today I could feel the wind chill factor.  So here I am inside in front of the heater for my photo!


The pattern is I think from the 50s Fair a few years ago - $8A I think?


The fabric is from Ikea - I loved it when I saw it and grabbed it - $30A


Zip is at the side - $2A?


I have always wanted to wear a dress like this but I don't think gathers are that flattering on me - but I really wanted to try it out!  It would be perfect for a scorching Sydney day - when sleeveless is the only option - with lots of sunscreen and a big hat.


Do you like my print on the wall in the background?  She is so summery - I love her!

Your dress has come up a treat Trish - lovely (and the gathers look fine!) She is a nice and summery picture. I'm freezing in VIC.

I love this dress on you Trish! The fabic and cut is really perfect. I had to laugh, I'm the same way, I think something won't work for me and one day give it a try and find out how much I really do like it!

Yes I do like the lovely lady on your wall, I was thinking tropical setting until I read snow (sorry).

i'm sure someone has said this: gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "house dress"... i love how you placed the top one!

thanks ladies, Cathe, you know how you can hear your mother's voice saying, "You shouldent wear gathered skirts" I can't get over it!
Comment by Cathe on June 6, 2011 at 10:27am
Yes, yes to this day I hear that voice…why does it still linger and hold us back?

I think I would have snapped up that print too - and yes, I love your painting.

I don't follow you on the 'gathering not being flattering' on you - I think you look smashing!

I adore this fabric, very nicely done!
