Ezri has been very patient with me and now she finally has a new maxi sundress. I made it from an old dress of mine that had gotten badly stained and then musty from being in the bottom of the wardrobe ( it was to nice to chuck out and to grubby for the charity shop ) So I salvaged what I could ( it was made in narrow panels ) I had to sew 3 pieces together to make the width and I simply pleated the top and attached a folded band and shoulder straps. It overlaps a fair bit at the back, for modesty. Even though I pressed it well it still wants to fold into pleats ( perhaps I made them to wide ) Anyway, Ezri and I are happy with it
It's a nice tropical print
A very simple style

Things are moving apace at the bottom of the garden

There is still an awful lot to be done, but it's a start. The weather has brightened up and the veg are growing like crazy! We are already feasting on kale and courgette, snack cucumbers, lettuce, radish and beetroot. We planted leeks yesterday; out first attempt.
