|dress: cow vintage, (bham)|
|sweater: ebay // tights: topshop|
|shoe boots : irregular choice|
take this dress, for instance, which i bought on a trip to birmingham more than a year ago, and can't remember wearing more than once..i am not usually a great lover of sleeves; most of the dresses i own don't have sleeves, or if they do they're usually of the capped variety, but the print appealed to me and for the sake of £7 i decided this pastel floral number deserved a place in my collection..
i decided that i could get away with a sweater, bought a long while back from one of the lovely elise's ebay sales (i think it's a vintage m+s), and which i haven't had an occasion to wear until now, so i layered it over the top, and decided that the muted mustard colour of these tights would pick out some of the other colours of the print..
added some old -favourites from irregular choice, and was all set to face the day...to go down to the car and find i had a bad pucnture, and would therefore be waiting in for the tyre-repair van for a while..i got a little more tidying / sorting done in the process, and cut out the paper pattern pieces for my next dressmaking project, which was good, as that's the stage i tend to hate of the whole process!
