Anyway onto the dress. I have been obsessing over barkcloth recently, I love the weight of it and the way it hangs plus it doesn't need too much of an iron which is always going to earn it brownie points. I have made three dresses so far but it is really hard to come by. I totally lucked out when I picked up some vintage barkcloth for a whole £16 including shipping from America which I made into the dress I wore to Rosie's wedding. More on that dress soon! I picked up this fabric from Japan and then the one I am sharing today from The Village Haberdashery when I visited earlier in the year. I wasn't sure of the weight of it so wanted to give it a stroke in person but I needed have worried, it is perfect.
I decided to sell off some of my unloved Tatty Devine collection recently and have ended up getting sucked back in! I traded a couple of pieces and have also bought a few new ones, ooops! I am going to make sure these ones get the love they deserve including my new lobster friend, isn't he a cutie! I think he needs to be worn with this dress asap!
