I picked up this fabric at the Sewing for Pleasure show at the NEC earlier this year for a bargain £6 a metre. I usually pay £12 a metre for Lizzy House fabric and had been after this design for weeks to no avail, I think my excitement at finding it at such a bargain price may have been apparent! I love that even though it is pink I can pull out the blue from the print and team it with my favourite blue shoes to make it a little less girly if that makes any sense. I have gone from having hardly any pink in my handmade wardrobe to adding loads of it since I made this dress and realising I can still wear pink as a red head. The fabric was purchased at the Fabrics Galore stand but isn't on their website, they had way more fabrics at the show than listed online so if you are near I recommend popping in and having a look. I got the impression that they purchase end of production fabrics and sell them off cheaper on a regular basis so if you are hunting for that fabric you have only just discovered, really need and can't find drop them an email - they might have it!
Dress: Made by me using Outfox The Fox fabric by Lizzy House bought from Fabrics Galore
Pattern: Emery by Christine Haynes
Another reason I haven't been very good at snapping outfit posts is photos like this. The majority of photos we take have the wind doing it's thing and me with my eyes closed, I just wanna take a few snaps and be done with it!
