Last Sunday was gorgeous and you guys know what this means.....correct bike ride.
We went on a short one this time (just over 1 hour) to Dedham which is a very cute little village just outside Colchester with cute old timber houses, an old church and church yard, old fashioned pubs and tea rooms and a very cool Arts and Crafts Center. As promised I was wearing a new dress I haven't shown here yet. It's just a little plain shift dress I made just before the holiday.
I had ordered the fabric from Fabricland a while ago (it seems like they are not doing it any more) and because it's quite a busy in your face print a simple shape of dress made sense.

There was an antiques fair on in Dedham that day and of course I had to have a browse. Unfortunately if it's called antiques fair the prices are twice as high to a vintage fair and they are already taking the mickey. I manages to score some white buttons for £1, a brooch for £3 and about 6 of the cute red terrier buttons for £4. They are worth the money. So cute, but now find a project to use them on. Any ideas?
