My summer frock

Well, it is warm enough in Sydney today for me to throw on this little number I made with my first sunday stash. Admittedly I finished the dress about a month ago and haven't had the gumption to "pose" for you!! I was still giggling through the photos as my mum kept telling me, "don't just stand there Bec, give a little wiggle!". I did wiggle but I don't know how much better it made it all... any road up, enough of my insecurities, it's all about the dress. The tie (sleeves and bow) is a black viscose georgette, which drapes quite well and isn't too stiff for the gathering at the front and back neck line.

After putting me through my photo shoot I thought it only fair that I submit my mum to the same. She has been totally demonic in sewing up a storm this morning. The most divine European fabrics have arrived at Tessuti and Colette was lovely enough to give us a preview yesterday. Of course, being addicted to fabric we all went a little crazy. It didn't help that Sue (aka Noosa Girl!) was down from the Sunshine Coast and somehow we all lost any form of rational thought between us and bought piles of fabric (but more of that at the next sunday stash!). Here is my mum's Pucci skirt, two side seams beautifully matched and a simple overlocked hem.

While we were being silly, little Miss Brigi found the Buddha statue and gave him a big smack on the lips- lucky guy.

Colette said...

Wow!Sue only left the store with that fabric less than 24 hrs ago!She's gooood and your dress is fabulous Bec.

We here all love the picture of Brigi best, of course! She's so funny :-)
Ps Thanks for the link

Bec do you think we have some sort of fabric obsession disease?
I definitely have a very serious case of it...but the worse thing that could happen is if they ever find a cure for it.
You look fab in that dress and how about Mama Pucci...both very yummy.

Miss B....what can I say...can't you please send her up in an overnight post bag. That Buddha is one lucky boy !
