That old line about mad dogs and Englishmen going out in the midday sun kept popping into my head as we were out here this morning. Although technically speaking, it is before nine o'clock in the morning and nowhere near midday yet, but it's already 28C **, and on such days we get out early so Sienna doesn't burn her tootsies on the pavement.
But it's true, I do indeed have English blood in me.
Additionally it's good to see we have a sane dog...
This is the little dress I made out of one of Craig's old polo Tshirts, and the scant remaining scraps from the striped business shirt I made for him. It has proved itself a fantastic little knockabout dress for hot days, I'm so super happy with how it turned out. It's not glamorous, but so comfy, cool and practical, and was basically like a free dress.
Dress; my own design, based very loosely on Burda 8071, made from an old polo Tshirt and striped cotton, for the lowdown see the details here

Sienna thinking, oh boy, here we go again with the photos (doggie eye-roll), well, I'll just wait over here in the shade while you get on with it...
