Its a beautiful, warm (very warm!) day here today so I thought it would be the perfect day to wear my tropical print dress for the first time!
It turned out so well, I'm really happy with it. The boning gives the bodice shape and the shirring gives it a fabulous fit! And I recently purchased a dress (yes, I buy clothing too - don't even ask about my wardrobe) that had the perfect coloured pink belt! And I'm sure you recognise the necklace too - its the one that the talented Lucy Luxxe made for me for my Melbourne Cup outfit.
Here's the back:
The shirring is in the side back panels, and when I make this again, I'm going to have bigger shirred panels and a smaller 'zipper' panel in the back - which means more shirring hypnotherapy for me!
And finally - here I am with the bag that started it all... sparkly pineapples!!!!
Speaking of which, did you see what I found last week...
Yes, you are seeing correctly - that bag has SPARKLY FLAMINGOS ON IT!!!!!!! So the crazy make-dress-to-match-bag saga will continue! Stay tuned!!!
