|Dress: Handmade (Simplicity 2444 w/ short sleeves)|
|Irregular Choice: Hook, Line + Sinker heels|
Having come back with so much fabric from our shopping trip last weekend, I had a lot to choose from, but I couldn't wait to get started on the next make. I'd been a little concerned that I didn't have enough of this elephant print fabric to make a dress, as I'd thought it was a 60in roll instead of 45 for some reason in the shop, so I decided to crack on with cutting out with this one out to see if I was going to need more, in order that I could pick a little more up if necessary when I passed this weekend.
As it happened, with a little bit of sneaky positioning, I had more than enough for a short-sleeved Simplicity 2444, and I managed to get it together in record time on Saturday morning. I love the print, but wish it wasn't so liable to creasing up. I think it goes nicely with these Irregular Choice heels, and added this cardigan for a little contrast, as well as the fact that it's cosy and was 1C when I left the house this morning. Bring on the snow.
This make takes my count to six dresses so far for 2014. I think I'm going to manage my goal a lot more easily this year, as I can't wait to decide what to tackle next.
