Made By Me #23

I said in my last Made by Me post that I usually go for ditsy prints, scrap that thought when you feast your eyes on this print!  I was hunting for cobalt blue fabrics so I could wear my favourite Clarks shoes more and came across this.  I thought the print would be too big so left it for a while but couldn't get those dandelion shaped flowers out of my mind so in my basket it went and boy am I glad I went for it.  I love the mix of blues and the black background tames it a bit in my opinion so I don't feel that I am wearing such a loud print.  Although I do love a bold print they can get a few too many 'what is she wearing' glances round Sainsburys at times.  I felt a bit like that when I wore my ostrich print dress, I absolutely love it but the pink background made me feel a bit self consious wearing it especially as people haven't learned that it is rude to stare.

I am loving taking part in Me Made May, there are so many amazing items on the hashtag - I have spotted some gems that have given me total fabric envy.  It's been a bit hard as I am trying to save some dresses for my holiday at the end of the month, I usually like to wear a new make as soon as it is finished so am making do with gazing at them hanging on the front of my wardrobe.  Their time will come!

    1. Thank you! They are as much of a curse as a blessing though, I can look very angular if I am not careful... but get the angle right and you could slice cucumber on them. Or something like that!
