Yellow linen shift - what a bargain!

Summer is really here today, more so than ever thanks to this wonderfully sunny dress. This was such a find last month on eBay. I paid £3.95 for it and couldn't really tell what it would be like, well you never can, can you, until it arrives? Imagine what a surprise it was to find that this was a handmade, hand embroidered, fully lined linen dress which seemed to have never been worn. I wonder if it had been made as a sewing project by a student for an exam perhaps? What a gem of a find. I'm thrilled to pieces with it, particularly as it fits like a glove. I may have to tweak the lining as it's a tiny bit long at the front, but I would still give it full marks!
My handbag has been revived after living under the bed for quite a few years, all wrapped up in layers of packing. It was a summer purchase many moons ago and seemed to get packed away at the end of the season and much to my amazement I forgot all about it until recently. Anyway, it's out now and I know it will come into it's own provided the weather holds.
