The Last Rose of Summer/Fall

Okay, so it isn’t Summer anymore, which was made abundantly clear this weekend with the time change.  But it doesn't quite feel like Fall, either (until the sun goes down, that is).

I am not a huge fan of diminishing daylight hours.  Which reminds me . . . I really have to do something about the light (or lack thereof) in my sewing room or my creative productivity is going to be seriously lacking for the next few months.

But I did manage to wear this dress on a lovely warm day not too long ago.  The weather today was gorgeous, as well, although driving home from work in the dark makes it feel like the dead of winter.

But a lovely crisp cotton is hard to resist, whether or not it is weather appropriate.

And while I promised myself that this dress was going to be the last cotton garment I make for a few months, my current project is also using the fiber.  In my defense, it is a velveteen, and therefore winter appropriate.

And that is my second Georgia dress.  Perhaps one of these days I will actually make it up as designed, straps and all!

Dress:  Made by me, Georgia “By Hand London
Shoes:  Nine West
Necklace:  Gift
Watch:  Borrowed from Mom


  1. the dress is awesome and so romantic

  2. Absolutely stunningly gorgeous!

  3. I hate the diminishing hours too! Glad you had enough light to finish this one!

  4. Lovely. I hate the time change. Getting out of work in total darkness for months is pretty depressing.

  5. This is so gorgeous. You're such an inspiration. Because of you, I just bought my first roll of Snug Hug!

  6. Looks lovely! As for summer being over, well, it did snow here in Boston on Sunday.

  7. You always look lovely, but these photos are really stunning. The colors of the fabric and the cut of the dress really suit you! Very inspiring.

  8. This illustrates a quote I have up on the wall these days:Talent hits a target no one else can hit; Genius hits a target no one else can see. Arthur Schopenhauer German philosopher (1788 - 1860)

    So, pardon me, I'm putting you into the latter camp.

    Me, I love November in Seattle. Greys, oranges, yellows reds and greens. And puffer vests to make it bearable.

  9. Ravishingly gorgeous dress!!!
