The unexpected sunny weather has got my prancing around in my favourite white summery outfit….. and thinking about pretty dresses.
I’ve got so much dress fabric in my stash….. I’m being very controlled at the moment and not buy anything more…. tho Louise will confirm that I nearly cracked under a navy blue backed strawberry print on our last trip to Shephards Bush….. boy do I want a pair of navy strawberry bloomers. I’ll should really do a fabric/sewing shopping london guide for all the brilliant cheap places i go to.
I’m loving this design/shape by J&J.
I love that its got that high bust detail with the loose pleats….. and a big full skirt….. with the soft round neckline. I’m thinking of using it as the basic design for the striped fabric I picked up in Paris in January (see below)…. would make a great party frock for the winter!
The question would be whether to cut the stripes on the middle waist panel vertically or horizontally? Horizontally would be better design-wise…..providing I’m not having a ‘fat day’.
Also glancing at the Millefleurs site I saw this…..
Those super bright colours are so much fun….happy happy happy. Its not very often I’m prepared to fork out for full price lolita dresses but this print/design is just glorious. Worth the £170 price tag i recon. I shall endeavour to find out if they do custom sizing as my waist is most definitely not 70cm. Sigh.
