|Shoes: Irregular Choice|
|Dress: Handmade (Christine Haynes Emery bodice, w/ gathered skirt)|
I don't very often say this, but I REALLY liked this outfit. One of my recent makes (I've finished four dresses in the last five days, I seem to be on a bit of a roll at the moment), I love the bright cheerful colours of this dinosaur fabric, which I bought at the Sewing for Pleasure show. I've now made dresses from all three of the fabrics I bought when I was there. Mostly because I have quite the fabric wishlist at the moment, but have promised myself I won't order any until I've used what I have. I'm getting there and I'm still feeling inspired, which I'm glad about.
I wore the dinosaur dress with these flat Irregular Choice shoes, for Day 23 of my #irregularchoicechallenge. It really is beginning to amaze me just how many pairs I'd forgotten I owned. These ones have probably been worn once, if that, after receiving them as a gift a good number of years ago. I liked that the colours matched that of the print of the dress and this bright hair bow I came across recently when I was clearing out the bathroom cabinet.
I had a lovely, if rather full (quelle horreur) weekend. A Friday evening of sewing, Saturday morning catching up on errands and with friends and family for coffees and sandwiches, then an AGM meeting in the afternoon before a cosy night in with the returned traveller. Sunday saw another dress made in the early morning and then a rainy wander around a local National Trust property followed by a leisurely pub dinner, before a trip to the theatre to watch my friend in a dance show. I was ready to fall asleep in front of CSI by yesterday evening (it happened, but I'm sure Horatio saved the day as usual!).
I hope everyone else had a nice weekend, too.
