Made By Me #10

This fabric choice might surprise a few of you, firstly I don't like most florals and secondly, erm orange!  Since going ginge it is a colour I have chosen to accessorise with rather than actually wear, don't want to end up looking like a walking satsuma.  I think the addition of the blue and the white background help balance the orange out and make it work for me.  And the flowers are more like drawings of flowers than actual flowers so I think it has more of a retro vibe to it than a floral one which works with me.

The fabric is a bargain at only £6.99 a metre and is 58" wide so I ended up with a lovely full skirt that I want to swish around in as I walk.  That wouldn't look weird at all now would it.  I like to match my zip to the fabric even though you can only really see the fastening but could I find an orange zip?! Nope!  I went for blue in the end and realised that it also works with my favourite Clarks shoes.





Dress: Made by me using Retro floral fabric from Minerva Crafts
Pattern: Emery by Christine Haynes
Shoes: asos

I'm currently at the Showing for Pleasure show at the NEC, fingers crossed I find lots of beautiful bargain fabric to bring home with me!
