weather ...or probably not...

Rodney and I drove the four hours to Sydney yesterday, planning to set up our marquee at Bondi Markets today. The weather forecast was looking dubious all week and the day has turned out worse than predicted. It is cold, windy and constant we will probably not unpack our woeful caravan to set up shop. Not only will patronage be significantly down at the market but theres the risk of getting the stock wet and damaged.

So we will try to make the most of the day while in the "big smoke" and have a drive around to check out some of the undercover markets.

This is a picture of another tunic dress I made recently. The fabric of the bodice is a hand block printed cotton voile from a vintage indian saree. The skirt is a polyester lace repurposed from skirt that I spent a lot of time appliqueing with raw edged strips of the cotton print. It has an irregular hemline. A picture of Frida Kahlo is the focal on the bodice. The garment is Australian size 14-16-18

Tunic "The leafy shade" by Pearl Red Moon
