Nick Cave. The father of 90’s music and still able to hold his own with the new album, . T’was an amazing concert under the stars and satellites on a perfectly balmy evening. The crowd filled with tears from memories of years gone by. We also relived our first dance from our wedding evening when he sang Into My Arms *goosebumps*.
The concert was held outside at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, so a sensible outfit that provided coverage and was also comfortable to recline on the grass was necessary. I love the way it turned out but unfortunately the skirt waist stretched whilst sewing, so coupled with some recent weight loss due to an angsty ovary, it sat rather low and was a little more sweeping on the ground than I had intended.
The fabric from the Fabric Godmother is exquisite and goes perfectly with my dark floral theme.
The sun was blinding, and I was ducking in and out of shadows trying not to burst into flames. My parasol was almost confiscated at the entry gate but luckily security were kind enough to allow me through with it.
And I couldn’t resist the temptation of making knickers to go with my outfit. I did manage to keep them on for the evening though.

Gorgeous dress, the fabric is lovely and I the maxi with peplum it’s so flattering and feminine. Fab knicks too, sound like you had a great evening.
Had a wonderful evening! And the knickers are now in rotation. I may need to print up some more xxx
What a great outfit for the occasion! You always knock it out of the park with florals.
Love the dress and those shoes are gorgeous too.
You always create something gorgeous and unique. This outfit is no different. The fabric is exquisite indeed!
You do find the most divine fabrics (and work quite some magic with them ;o)
