Made By Me #18

Crazy cat day today!  I love, love. love this dress.  It is definitely one of my favourite me made dresses and well worth the hassle (and expense) getting my hands on this colourway of the fabric.  The versions available in the UK are all too pale in colour for my skin tone and I really, really wanted it so I took the plunge and ordered it from the US via Etsy.  It took over three weeks to arrive and I got stung by customs but none of that has made me love this dress any less.  The cranberry background is a beautiful kind of burgundy tone and perfectly sets of the bright pink cats. The cats remind me of Lyzi and her cat tattoos.  This dress gets a lot of stares when I wear it.  A lot of them are from little girls probably thinking I am wearing the most amazingly awesome dress ever.  That's what I tell myself anyway ;)





Dress: Made by me using Purrfectly Happy by Lizzy House
Pattern: Emery by Christine Haynes
Shoes: M&S

Have a fantastic Easter bank holiday weekend.  I will be wearing something other than a me made dress today as we are painting our bathrooms and there is no way I am going to get paint on any of my babies!!

  6. The colour way is fabulous against your colouring, well worth the expense I'd say! In a year or two's time, who will remember the cost ;-) Another gorgeous one to add to the collection xx

  9. Haha I love the cat fabric and this made me laugh as I so often notice little kids pointing out what I'm wearing to their parents (usually my shoes, surely not!) and they're always shushed and told not to point :( I like telling people when I love what they're wearing.
