Calico cats and calico dreams..

Dress: Handmade (NL6223)
Necklace: Primark
Shoes: Irregular Choice

I'd been saving this cat print dress for #MMMay14 and was quite pleased when it's turn rolled around. I made this a little while back from some fabric I'd purchased from Plush Addict and it's another 6223. I've just tried to look for a link to the fabric but it looks as though it must be sold out.

I retrieved it from the wardrobe and began the hunt for some suitable shoes to go with it. This would be another pair which I've never worn, despite buying them maybe seven years ago now. They've sat around in their box in storage for that time and although I've noticed them now and again, I'd never quite got around to wearing them. I figured they were a perfect match for this dress, though.

I look super sleepy in these photos - likely because on the day I took them I'd decided that in order to fit everything in I'd have to get up an hour or so earlier than usual, so about 5.15am. Gah. It worked though and I managed to find time for a 45min swim before work, which made me happy. Need to get back into that habit in a big way. Do you have any tips for fitting things in to your schedule?


  1. No no no no, a day should not have two 5's in it!!!! I just do as much as I can. That dress is really cute and looks really well made x

  2. Gotta love a cat print!
    As for my schedule, I don't even know where to begin most days! I start with good intentions and make a plan of what I definitely want to achieve that day, after that it's anyone's guess!

  3. I love the material, what a sweet print

  4. I don't know what I love more; the dress or the shoes! Such pretty patterns! <3 xx
