Like a blister in the sun

This handmade dress is one of my finds from the Sunshine Coast. It's a cotton shift dress with pockets & a sweet collar. It's so strange when someone makes a dress in another era, & it fits like it was made for you 50 years later.

  1. That dress is freaking amazing - fits you SO WELL! I want a groovy shift dress with a collar now too. I hope all of the tests you had went well?

  2. That is a perfectly fitting dress! it always intrigues me, too when I find a handmade item that seems made for me. Love the pockets and the collar.

  3. I love the dress and I love the bag and sandals even more. A perfect summer outfit. I'll be singing that song all day now. It always reminds me of My So Called Life xxx

  4. OOOOH I love!! If you ever want to sell that one, can I PLLLLEASE buy it! You look gorgeous in it and I am sure you wont want to sell, but knowing just how full your wardrobe is :-). Hope you have recovered from your fat overload and that the second day of blood giving went better?? You have really been in my thoughts and I hope that it was worth it and they can get the tests done. Hope you are feeling ok and enjoying the warmer weather (I know you're not a fan). Sending you much love xoxo

  7. This dress was made for you - look at the way it fits, its perfect. The details on the collar and pocket plackets are just so cute. I have been thinking of you my dear, and hope that the health things are improving. I had my own blood-test horror-story yesterday and i thought of you and thats partially why I sat back at the keyboard and blogged again. I needed to re-connect. Thank you for your lovely comment on my post. Sending you a massive big hug xx
