DIY Dress - Orange Stripes & Paisley Print




Hello there! I am going dress-making crazy. Once I found these two amazing incredible fabrics whilst thrifting the other day, I knew they were meant for each other. So I made a dress out of them!

Here they are in closer detail. Such pretty fabrics!!

Wearing:
Dress - I made it!
Belt - Vintage
Bag - Vintage
Hat - c/o Wholesaledress
Bowtie - I made it
Socks - c/o Shop With Romi
Shoes - Rubi Shoes

I'm also going to give a sneaky shout-out to my mum, because it's mothers day today! My mum is an amazing woman, she is my thrifting partner-in-crime with a spectacular sense of style (I'm seriously going to have to take a picture of her for my blog one day, and then you can all see where I get my sense of style from), and is probably the most kind and compassionate person I've ever come across. And I know she reads my blog ;) Happy mother's day, mum!

I hope you're all having a super nice day (especially if you're a mum)!

  16. These colours are so lovely together! I am envious of your sewing skills - you're amazing! I want all skirts to be full and poofy! (Well, that's not true, but your amazing flippy skirts make me feel that way.)
