This past weekend, David and I revisited one of our favourite places in Edinburgh, Dean Village. Dean Village is a quite, tucked-away neighbourhood right in Central Edinburgh.
You take an unassuming (and steep!) street down into Dean Village and a beautiful, picturesque place unfolds before your eyes...
The area used to be a grain milling community for about 800 years and there is still evidence of water mills and old mill buildings.
On this particular outing, I wore my 'Hiatus' dress, sewn using a McCall pattern (3939) from 1940:
The Water of Leith runs right through Dean Village, providing some very picturesque views looking out from the pedestrian bridge:
And of course, Autumn is a beautiful time with all the leaves changing colours. There are more yellow tones in all the trees and they are rapidly losing their leaves. We've had some surprisingly sunny days, which often fool me into thinking it's getting warmer. However, when the sun goes down (at 4:14pm already!!!), it gets properly cold!
Soon it will be too cold to wear dresses without winter tights!
There is something so beautiful about autumn, don't you think? I hate the impending cold weather and wish it could stay autumn for all the winter months too!! I'm curious, how is your autumn or spring so far?
