I seem to say this a lot more often lately, but this is one of my favourite dresses for a while. I think this is perhaps down to being more picky with the fabrics I buy. Rather than ordering something because it's a bargain, I've lately been more likely to hold out for a good deal on something I know I really want and have a particular project in mind for.
This octopus print Cotton and Steel fabric came from The Village Haberdashery when I was in London with Sarah a couple of weekends ago. I'd told myself I wasn't to buy any fabric, but in fact came home with three. I'd sold more than enough of my stash to cover it in the preceding week, but still felt a bit guilty.
But in fact, since making this dress up on Saturday, I've already worn it twice. Which is pretty good going for me and maybe makes it a less guilty purchase?
