Another pair of one of my favourite Irregular Choice styles arrived for my collection recently. I have Scottie Dog in several other colourways, but they were relaunched last season with new polka dot backgrounds and I think it's the perfect refresh for them, whilst still retaining all of the wonderful features which have made Scottie Dog one of the archetypal IC classics.
So, what's changed? Well, the background fabric is no longer the felt of previous styles and is now a pretty black satin with embroidered polka dots - the attention to detail is wonderful. The little black scottie dog is still losing his lead across the front of the shoes, and is finished off with the blanket stitch edging and the little polka dot bow.
I do wonder if it's a little tricky to lose the dog on the front of the busy polka dot background, but they're rather cute nonetheless.
