If I actually did some sewing, instead of wandering through blogs full of wonderful sewing ideas, I could make me one of these......a very pretty dress by Andrea Moore
With this gorgeous fabric by Amy Butler
or this one, which Ms Moore has also used for the dress (or something very similar anyhoo).
The Miriam Gibson store has some skirts by another designer who's name I don't remember,in some fabric that I've also seen on the net someplace...but I can't find it to show you......so you'll just have to take my word for it. They're really nice.
Ms Gibson does however have this covetable dress in her collection, which I could whip up in a weekend, with this pattern...
The most noteworthy thing about this post is, of course, that I have ventured into not one, but two of Wellingtons finest designer stores, the kind of places where an article of clothing sells for the kind of money that equals two weeks grocery budget in my house.
and I liked them.
but I didn't buy anything.
