Made By Me #12

Squirrels!!  Another new animal addition to the #wardrobezoo.  I had bookmarked this fabric online after thinking it would look cute on a dress but wasn't quite sure until I saw it in the flesh at The Quilters Den in Warwick.  I needed it, it's just perfect!  The base colour is a gorgeous mauve and is covered with little squirrels, acorns, trees and love hearts.  Kitschy cute without looking childish, exactly what I go for.  I love the fabrics from Dashwood Studio, I have my eye on this mouse one from the same range and have already bought a couple of the flurry range which come in loads of colours and will make for an ace dress.  A nice variation on standard polka dot dresses.

I've been wishing for brighter days for a while now but had forgotten how annoying the sun can be when it makes an appearance, badly timed photos led to a bit of squinting from me but it was either squinting or no photos.  I will be able to go back to taking them at 6pm soon, best time for me as I can do them after work, the sun doesn't interfere and it's bright enough for the colours to come through.





Shoes: asos

Have a lovely Sunday :)

  3. That fabric is gorgeous. I'm loving all your Sunday sewing adventures. It's really tempting me to give it a go myself... Hmmm, I may have to chase the Mother for some sewing lessons!

    1. Thank you! You really should and I wholeheartedly recommend the Emery, I hadn't made a dress before and didn't find it too taxing.
