Spring has sprung dress.

Well hello again! Yes I have been gone for some time. I got into a bit of a blog funk and needed a break. I have also had the winter doldrums , case in point: yesterday was gloriously sunny and 70 with people running in short's, walking their dog's, eating at cafe's al fresco , playing at the park... Today is 33 with the wind's howling like a pack of wolves, ice and snow, people squirreled back inside wondering what tha? Was yesterday a spring dream of wishful yearning? ( yeah I'm feeling dramatic today)

Well enough is enough I say! Perhaps if I make a new spring inspired dress I can at least have a new frock to look forward to wearing when the warm sun finally decides to fight the winter for its right's to spring!

And so I did.

Vintage yard's of cotton floral fabric found thrifted, some perfectly matched old seam binding also found in a second hand shop, some yellow ochre silky ribbon, and an old but beautiful hanky I picked up long ago for 50 cents at a garage sale finally found its purpose as it was all clipped, snipped, pinned , and sewed into this simple garment that I will likely pair with a light cardi, and sandals. 

Now if a new dress doesn't cheer up a girl with the winter blues I don't know what will!
