I spent last night very restlessly, mulling over how to make the panniers better. I think I have come up with an idea or two, but I have yet to put anything into action, because I spent the greater part of the day in my garden, and haven’t sewn a stitch all day long. (WHAT?!)
But, because I’ve been addicted to posting on pretty much daily basis, I couldn’t let the day completely pass without sharing something!
Because I was in the garden, I kept thinking of all the lovely spring-y and floral-y gowns that have caught my eye lately! (These all came from “OMG that dress!” tumblr. Which you should go to and drool over, if you’ve never seen it before. OMG that dress indeed.
(I selfishly wanted to keep it my little secret, but I love ya’ll too much to keep it secret forever.)
1950s dress via Timeless Vixen Vintage
Christian Dior dress ca. 1955 via The Kyoto Costume Institute (I didn’t realize this gown had a floral motif at first – look closely; doesn’t it just remind you of a whole swath of slips?)
Dress ca. 1887-1888 via Manchester City Galleries (Not that I have the perfect fabric in my stash for this gown. Nuh uh. And not at all that I’ve been craving a tennis dress for like…….what feels like forever.)
Hopefully I can finish up weeding the flowerbeds and get the dishes under control so I can get back to sewing! Wish me luck! (Or pray the snow keeps coming – no weeding in the snow for me!)
