It was so hot again today, I'm not sure what it reached where we are, but the city had a top of just under 43 degrees - too hot for much at all, especially when its after days of other really hot weather. Apart from a quick dash to the shops this afternoon, we stayed inside with the curtains drawn and the air conditioner gently cooling the house to a much nicer temperature than that outside - thank goodness for the air conditioner!!!
The kids were all really well behaved considering they were stuck inside all day. I think that the busy weekend of a trip to the beach, a birthday party and then an afternoon/evening at their cousins pool helped them appreciate a little down time. While the older boys played games on their DS and the laptop, and the two little ones both had nice big sleeps, I got in some sewing time...another dress of course!
Its the first time Ive actually followed a pattern. I downloaded and printed off the free Oliver + S sundress pattern. It was pretty simple, although it looks very similar to the little pillowcase dresses Ive been making. I did add a little bobbly ribbon trim to it which looks quite cute.
Its a size 2, and unfortunately a little large to be practical - it will go away for next year I think.
