Happy Wardrobe Wednesday to you all!
Today's ensemble is a dress which I loved the fabric of so much that I really didn't care that it's a bit big...nothing that a belt & some pins doesn't sort ;) If it didn't have drawstrings all over the show I'd take it in - but the drawstring waist AND drawstrings in both shoulders mean I'd have to totally deconstruct it & start again. I don't think so! Belt & pins, here we come. I might hand sew the top to make it a bit less voluminous sometime soon! Merino icebreaker top underneath (spring, where are you?), obi belt from kilt (on which I modelled the other four I've since made), and a pair of tights I think I stole from mum.
No shoes again - one day I'll surprise you all & actually have some footwear involved. Fluffy hair c/- Jarvis (who has hidden my straightening irons. Why is his the only room with a power point & mirror in close proximity!), awesome looking iams green bin is a toybox which blocks a certain gentleman from climbing up onto the little desk & throwing the freeview box onto the floor.
As it's looking so pretty, I'll credit the painting behind me too...my lovely hubby bought it for me as a birthday present back when we were a two income/zero children family - by a fantastic kiwi artist/designer who goes by the name of Flox. It is absolutely beautiful, the woman is a genius.
Looking forward to seeing everyone's Wardrobe Wednesday blogs today!! Have a good one :)
