I have been obsessing over 1950's dresses, again. And seeing it's my birthday, I thought I'd treat myself and spend an hour or two going through my vintage 50s mags for some more inspiration. I love these simple striped dresses...
They have full skirts, using a princess line instead of gathers, which I find more slimming. I do have some orange and white striped cotton fabric that would be lovely for a summer dress - maybe a pattern like this would work.

My husband did fix my sewing machine for me on the weekend - a list of 'fix-it ' jobs was my birthday wishlist this year - so I really have no excuse now not to sew. If I can just find my sewing scissors....
Anyway, I did even manage to go to the office for a few hours today, and was bought my favourite Salmon sushi for a very late lunch. As it's raining, well bucketing actually, here, the kids and I watched a moive after school, and then they gave me some pointers in the 'Nut bush' and 'Macarena', so I am ready for Aimee's primary school graduation night in a few weeks.
Anyway, have a lovely day, and to my fellow Queenslander's, try to stay dry, and away from hail stones! (My daughter is at 'schoolies' in Airlie Beach, and it's rained no-stop - poor kids! )
