The kitchen in Rose Seidler House
Mum and I got lucky in the weather stakes and it was a beautiful day with many thankful they had brought their parasol. I was very constrained in the purchase department and I only bought a blue and gold bracelet which will go perfectly with a blue crepe fabric I have in my stash to make a work dress in. I also picked up a couple of old magazines and some old fabric store adverts I will eventually frame for my flat (or future sewing room!).
My favourite part of the day is the best dressed competition. I love seeing the effort people put into their outfits from their hats right down to the gloves and shoes. I made my dress for the day out of a vintage Butterick pattern (I’ll blog about it later) and was hand stitching the finishing bits to it at 10pm the night before. Nothing like a bit of adrenaline to get the job done! One year I will actually enter the best dressed when I am more prepared and think about adding the accessories which really make the outfit. For now, I just enjoy people watching and getting heaps of ideas for future outfits.
