New finds today.

Today was such a lovely, sunny (yet absolutely freezing!) day here and my boyfriend and I went to the city centre to pick up some fabric for a dress that I am going to sew at my sewing course.

It's going to be a very cute (hopefully!) plaid dress with a peter pan collar and buttons. I really can't wait to finish it!

I also got these adorable woolen knee socks at H&M. I think they are going to look great with my future dress as well.

Later on we went for a walk in the autumn coloured woods and I'll show you the photos we took there another day. Before I forget; thanks everyone, for all the wonderful tips on how to stop procrastinating!

I really wish our H&M's had more leg wear! We hardly have any stockings or socks here.

I adore the fabric! I think it would make a lovely bag or laptop case.
