Over the weekend we went to go check out the Slow Food Market at Stellenbosch. I wanted to take pictures of a dress I made recently and decided that the market would be an ideal venue. I got the pattern by cutting up an old dress I had and then tracing it – obviously making some adjustments. I had the fabric before I had the pattern - just could not resist the colour. Love that it is a very simple pattern and very comfortable to wear in summer.
When I made it i misjudged the length that the straps would have had to be – so to make them shorter i folded the straps and put a button over it. Why hide it when you can make something of it? Yes i wore my new-broken necklace too. They were selling very nice pendants at the market as well – I was very tempted to buy.
The market at Stellenbosch is much like the market at the Old Biscuit Mill. I think some of the people selling products at the Slow Market probably supply the Old Biscuit Mill as well. There are fashion stalls selling handmade jewelry and hats as well as fresh products and great food.
They sell the most seductive tarts and cakes and all things sweet as well as sushi!
Go get a cup of tea – or ice tea – from the lady in the caravan and sit in the shade overlooking the vineyards and mountains of the Stellenbosch valley.
If you want to break out of the city – i would suggest the Slow Food Market at Stellenbosch on Saturdays.
