Spring has sprung!


It seems like spring has finally decided to grace us with its presence! The sun is out and I feel ready to make a start on my spring/summer wardrobe. Today, I got so excited by the sunny weather, I rushed out first thing in the morning to my local fabric shop and bought five metres of amazing fabric with huge hand-drawn sunflowers printed all over it. It literally screams SPRING! I plan to make a bralet and a full fifties skirt similar to the one in the picture below:

Dolce and Gabbana SS12

I can finally put away my fur coats and opt for a spring jacket… I think I’m getting carried away! After all I live in Britain and this glorious weather we have been enjoying over the last few days – two days to be exact will unfortunately not be gracing us for too long.

For those of you eagerly waiting (or daydreaming like myself) for a weather change, here is a lovely poem to help brighten up your day:

Its spring its spring
Oh I just can’t wait
To find fruits on the vases
And flowers on my plate

I want to hear the warm sun
And feel the robin singing
Watch the scent of the flowers
And smell the butterflies flying

Its spring its spring
I’m so full of glee
For the people will bloom
And the flowers will be happy

The gray fields shall be covered
With the magic of the meadow
And the brown sky shall be painted
With the blossoms of the rainbow

Its spring its spring
How can I be blue?
For it is the time of spring
And only the spring brings you
