Siren Song












Photographs by Tim of Nicol & Dime

Dress - Katie-Louise Ford Handmade
Teaspoon bracelet- 21st Birthday gift made by my Pappa
Paper hair flowers - Clegs

After seven long months without a sewing machine I've suddenly found myself with not one, but three at my disposal. In a flurry of excitement I whipped up this sweetheart in three hours flat. I've had this dreamy cotton voile hanging round for eons, I must of adored it a bit too much as I couldn't for the life of me decide what style of frock to make of it. In the end I bit the bullet and settled on a simple cut with underlying Virgin Suicidey/Picnic at Hanging Rock vibes.. Surprise, surprise! I wore it to a Nicol soiree in Cronulla over the weekend and it proved to be the perfect thing for a backyard BBQ and bare footed sunset jaunt to the seaside.

Although my first Sydney summer has been rather mild thus far, I'm told that come mid February I'll be begging for mercy. When these days come I have a feeling this dress will be worth its weight in gold...

  5. I can understand why you hesitate to cut this wonderful fabric very well. I have several pieces of fabric that I bought in Paris and Brussels and that I somehow always find to beautiful to actually use... which makes no sense at all but still. You dress is very pretty!
