I have a stack of fabric that I have already cut out ready to sew but then something else comes along which gets pushed to the front of the queue. I'm sure you won't be surprised that this awesome fabric jumped right to the front of the queue, it was just demanding to be whipped up into a dress and worn pronto! As we are heading towards April I am sure I will be amusing myself wearing my new umbrella print dress and thinking of the April showers we are no doubt in line for. Either that or umbrella-ella-ella will be on constant repeat in my head.
The fabric is such fun and the colours really vibrant. You can just about make out the tonal raindrops in the close up photo of the bodice. I am loving the fact that the pink in it will work really well with my new Orla's, almost as if I planned it! I'm not allowing myself to wear them just yet so popped on a pair of my favourites from the AW collection. I have been wearing a lot of blue and navy recently so have dug out my navy strapped Olivia Burton watch, think I might have to get a pink strapped one for summer so I can be all matchy matchy. The fabric was kindly supplied by Elephant in my Handbag, make sure you check out their selection of fabrics and make good use of the discount code in my sidebar - they have just taken delivery of some lush Cotton and Steel fabrics.
