Raw Silk and The Old Museum...

This post is actually a combo of the last two days. Garth had a job interview in the valley, near The Old Museum, so I snuck around the grounds to take some photos. I actually wore the last little dress I made, but it was nearly 40 degrees celcuis and I was a gross sweaty mess, so no photos of me that day!

The dress in these photos is a recent fix-er-upper. You know those dresses you get for cheap and always say you'll fix up but never do? Yeah, this is one of those. It was hanging on the wall in my living room for about a year and I finally got round to hemming and fixing it up for wear. It's raw silk, so it feels beautiful.

I'm going down to Melbourne to find an apartment for us in the 12th-14th December. I'm so excited. But, today is our day off and we're planning an afternoonn picnic, so I've got to go! See you soon.


  1. I think it's wonderful that you fix up your clothes, even if it takes a year!! Makes me realise I'm not the only one who stockpiles!! Hope the picnic was lovely and all the best finding an apartment :)

  2. Oh, yes, I know what you mean! I always buy little "projects" for myself that end up living on a hanger for quite awhile. Your dress is lovely!

  3. Best of luck with your house-hunting! And boy do I know what you mean about the "fix-er upper" dresses - my pile hasn't been touched in a year. I really ought to get round to it!

    Yours looks lovely though :)


Thanks for your comments!
