The L Dress 

An exceptionally short post – I present to you the L Dress. It’s a Bettine made from some viscose type fabric purchased from The Textile Centre a few months ago. I’ve not tried to hide the fact that I’m majorly behind with blogging my makes, and this is illustrated by the fact that I made this back in June. I’ve worn it a few times, although not over the last couple of months. The Bettine isn’t an overly summery pattern but the fabric just makes me think of sunnier days! Probably about time I dug it out of the wardrobe, check the fit and then pair it with tights and a cardigan. Last week I spotted I’m not the only one to pair up this pattern and fabric – @isabelinfo on Instagram had me doing a double take at her almost identical version! Oh, and as for the L? Well, after toying with several adjectives beginning with L that may be used to describe ice cream, I think this one will be The Late Dress, since I’m 6 months late in sharing it with you.

  1. Oh, summer time, this dress is shouting out: summer time. Loving it.

  2. How funny that somebody else made exactly the same dress! Tights are a good idea as the base colour says Winter rather than Summer to me, despite the ice cream theme.

    • I couldn’t believe it when I saw the picture on her IG feed! Great minds think alike! I’ve recently sorted out a load of old/oversized makes and sent them to charity, so I should really make a decision and either wear it or send it on it’s travels.

#football #sport #sports #court #outdoors #optoutside #sky #clouds #bluesky #nightfall #twilight #bluehour #violet The landscape is changing and whilst the trees are still vibrant, many of the fields have been harvested and are looking drab. Looking at Wilfie's expression however, the surroundings don't detract from his enjoyment of the 10 mile run he just accompanied me on. He kept up perfectly and is now snoozing beside me. He's a good dog. •
