MLF has had her beady eyes on this fabric for a while and now I finally relent. It came from a German Ebay seller several years ago who's since stopped trading which is a real shame as she had some gorgeous pieces. I think this is a linen/cotton blend but in any case it drapes so beautifully and will be perfect for a dress to take madam through Spring, Summer and Autumn too, come to think of it, with the right accessories.
The pattern is New Look 6504 and a particular favourite of mine, in fact it's one I've already used here and here, so it must be good. I love it for its simplicity, of course, and because of the fabric's large, striking print I didn't feel the need to embellish too much. Well, just a length of antique lace because ... well why not quite frankly?!
Along with the trials and tribulations of having a mainly uninspired model ("modelling is sooo boring Mummy"), this girl is developing some first class negotiating skills. This photo shoot cost me one of these, plus a TV dinner. Oh, and one other thing was reinforced. Never work with children and animals. Ever!
So there you are, little cherubs for my little cherub. Pass the cheese ..
Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend x
