Spring Picnic..

Dress: Handmade (Simplicity 6587)
Jumper: Primark 
Smartie Pants heels: Irregular Choice*

I mentioned earlier in the week that I'd tried out this Simplicity pattern (I reviewed it here). Even though I'd said I would be adding another button to the top of the neckline, I ended up wearing it anyway this week.

As it was still quite cold outside, and it's possible that the bodice could do to be taken in a little bit at the seams, I decided to layer the dress over a thin jumper. I think it works quite well as a pinafore, although I'll make the alterations anyway as I think I'd be more likely to wear it as a regular dress if the fit was a little more snug. The print makes me long for Spring days, which can't be far away.


  1. What a gorgeous colour, fab with those shoes too.

  2. That dress is so beautiful! Well done you! You look fabulous. xx
