A Dress That Looks Like Holly Hobby Threw-Up On Me
And she was all hepped-up on chamomile tea. That Holly Hobby (or maybe it was Sun Bonnet Sue?) she sure was everywhere in the mid-70's, including the sewing room of the person that made this dress.
She probably listened to John Denver records whilst sewing. "Country roads, take me home to the place, I belong..."
Holly Hobby forgot to sew in darts, so it is a bit shapeless up top. I don't think anyone noticed, they were too stunned by the pattern.
It was hot and humid today. This is just about the perfect dress for our weather, though I had to be a bit more ladylike than usual getting out of the car. I wore especially nice undies-just in case I flashed anyone.

I'm going to do a big harvest of basil from the garden for pesto tonight. I have some early garlic ready to harvest as well (it is a completely different vegetable if used before hanging to cure for a week or so. Very mild, and almost milky it makes for some interesting early spring meals. I'm not sure it would stand up to basil in a pesto. We'll see.
