The weather continues to be unseasonably warm, so the summer shoes are coming out.

These polka-dotted ones were from TradeMe, and about $10.

I need a nice 1950s sort of frock to wear with them - and a hat. Not sure what colour dress - has to be a plain colour I think (today I'm wearing the same plain black knit dress as yesterday), but do I want red? Or white? Or I wonder what they'd look like with the black-and-white dress I made last year? It's a similar type of canvas fabric, but with big (3 inch or so) black TV screen outline shapes on a white background.

Whew, I don't have a lot of work to do today, a bit like this:

It has quite big unstructured pleats at the front and back of the skirt to give fullness (my Adobe Illustrator skills aren't quite equal to drawing them- not quickly anyway) and is quite narrow around the bottom.
