It's Frocking Autumn!

It seems that Autumn is upon us. 
I love this dress - it's got a bit of an autumnal feel..

I can't complain about the weather - I LOVE the cold mornings and nights and the beautiful clear days. 

* Right now I'm only JUST squeezing my bust into this.
It's pretty snug!
* The dress has a mighty handy pocket at the front.
* The length is perfect. 

Dress: $5 from an op shop in Taranaki, a couple of years ago.
Plastic beads from some garage sale somewhere!
Bust : All my own. Homegrown.
Iris's frock is quite a short one - but instead of bloomers she's wearing a pair of cords with it..
The dress was handmade by my mama.  I have a photo somewhere of me in it.

Having a busy few days.

Great dress! I'm the opposite, I can't stand the cold and feel seriously miffed about the lack of a decent summer! Oh by the way your daughter has the must stunning eyes, how beautiful.
