Bee Mine..

Dress: Handmade (Sew Magazine Bette) // Jumper: F+F*
Here's a weird thing. I picked this fabric up from Abakhan when I visited just before New Year with Alex. I didn't have anything in particular in mind for it, although it was a fair assumption to say it would likely be a dress. Then it just sat there. I tend to choose what to make next by picking the fabric I want to use next, then deciding on a shape, pattern etc. I don't know if I's just gone off it or what, but I suddenly didn't feel so enthusiastic about it.

Purse: Primark // Shoes: Irregular Choice
I was having a ruthless clear out of fabric recently - all part of this haphazard Spring Clean malarkey, I suppose, which sees me throw a handful of things out of the wardrobe and list them onto my Instagram sale page every now and again. I decided, before slinging it, that I'd actually make my new favourite (Bette) pattern with it and it turns out that in dress form, I love it.

I paired the pink sweater and some ancient-but-still-one-of-my-favourite pairs of Irregular Choice heels, and this perfect little coin purse, which I was sent in one of my penpal letters a couple of weeks ago. Snail mail is wonderful, in case you didn't already know.
