I finally have a showing project to share with you! This past weekend I wore a little sun dress to my cousin's graduation party. The pattern comes from a1940s Anne Adams slip, to which a made some alterations so it looks less like lingerie and more like something I could wear out. (Even though there appears to be some trends towards wearing lingerie as clothing, I haven't quite bought my ticket on that bus yet).

Hubby and I went out to one of my favorite lakes near where I used to live to snap some photos. We found a nice secluded spot. As I was getting in the water, there was a dead sunnie just floating around. I don't like touching live fish, but a dead fish is even more disturbing. So a grabbed a stick to scoop him out of the way, so I wouldn't have to worry about him bumping against my legs as I stood in the water. Hence the name, "a little sunnie".

|This dress just reminds me of summer, which makes me happy|
As a side note, I curled my hair in ringlets before taking these photos. The humidity pretty much eliminated all of my work before I even got to the lake. Welcome summer!
Live the moment, love life!
