it's about time

I bought this dress about 5 or 6 years ago, and thought it would be great for hanging around at the park on hot days - nice and loose and cotton, but it was a bit short - bottom revealing short if you happened to be chasing a toddler. No problem I though, add a border and it'll be fine.

So I managed to get it done this week, yay! No toddlers to chase now though.



I'm quite pleased with the result, I used a bit of Kaffe Fassett fabric, that I coinsidently bought at around the same time - I think they work well together, lets hope the sun sticks around for a while so I can wear it. 

I went shopping for curtain lining today - I got a little side-tracked in the shop. Ooops.



Thinking that stamp fabric will make a great cushion...
