Hi Huns...


This is what summertime dreams are made of...The softness of colour...the flow and fit...Well...that's at least what i think...When i think about summer days...day dreaming much then...

So...summer has finally come to an end getting abit emotional...BOOO!...or is it...isn't it...

Well according to the weather outside it has granted us another summers day HOORRAY!...


So lets make the best of it....But don't get caught out...Whatever you do, always bring a cardi with yah...Old habits die hard...mama always told me growing up...Make sure you wear your cardigan...where i would secretly (Tut and Eye roll)...to that comment...So annoying...mum's aye!...But love her to bits, their always right...MUM'S THE WORD!


Well i tell you this...that has always stuck with me...no matter where i go...rain come shine....I will always remember my cardi ( lovin grateful Smile)...


So this peach kimono wrap-over...always reminds me of summer...The shape...the soft pastel colour...the lightness of it...This is just soo right for summer...This was made using left over silks....brought in soho...west end...New look pattern used purchased from jaycotts online pattern store. A fun and easy make.
