And her eyes can light the sky..

Dress: Handmade (Butterick B6167 in Michael Miller fabric)

Feather Hat: Vintage
Bag: Gift // Shoes: New Look

Somewhere in the midst of the darkest couple of days I remember experiencing for a while, I managed to take my mind off things by getting reacquainted with my sewing machine. I mentioned after making this pattern for the first time that I had another fabric in mind for it. This flamingo border print fabric has been sitting patiently in my fabric trolley for about a year now. Inspired by Zoe's wonderful flamingo S2444 and of course my Mean Girl Roisin's Nora dress, I decided it was high time I stopped faffing about and got on with it.

So there you have it - my flamingo B6167. Once done, it reminded me of my flamingo bag - a gift last year which I've barely used, as I need to figure out a way of flattening out the neck and the tail. I love the fact it has chain legs, though, with feet on the ends.

Also, the dress is The Perfect Colour to match this vintage feather hat, and my new giant-toddler-style (apparently) sandals. I like them, though. In fact, I think this might be one of the outfits I pack to take to Paris this weekend.


  1. You more beatiful with your smile

  2. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAahgrh, insanely cute! I love border print materials!!! You look very pretty and very nicely coordinated too! I ALMOST bought a fox clutch bag earlier in Yumi but I bought a new purse instead! I hope you have a delightful time in Paris when you get there (try not to worry about the crossing.) x

  3. The dress looks amazing! You really should set up your own Etsy shop or something, and sell handmade dresses! I bet you'd make a fortune. Your handmade dresses always look stunning. xx

  4. I think that outfit wins the award for best dress to bag coordination EVER!
