Here are those photos I promised to share weeks ago of that new dress I made! University makes Josie a bad blogger. Oops! Despite being unbelievably busy I am still managing to have the time of my life with the study at least. Between memorising latin plant names and spending hours learning pruning techniques I'm in a bit of a nerdy sort of heaven!
This dress is a summer version of the Squirrel dress, made in a lovely lightweight linen, and I have been getting lots of use out of it in this seemingly never-ending Summer we've been having! The print was actually a tiny flower stamp I made, but the end result came out looking so much more like stars that I decided that would have to be it's name.
I have to admit I fought pink in all it's shades for a very long time, I think I just found it too 'girly'? I'm not sure why I didn't like it. I have recently embraced it's lovely cheerfulness though, and am suddenly finding myself attracted to all things pink, especially nice rich shades like this one, as well as lighter, peachier tones.
I have put the dress up in the shop, while I can still get my hands on this lovely linen (which is a sustainable fibre by the way!) I'm afraid I've had to extend my sewing times on most of the items in my shop due to my being so busy with school and working with www.valentinesgiftsforher.com.au to list the cutest Valentine's presents a girl could get - sorry about that! I had a few requests on instagram for this dress though, so I thought I would list it just in case anyone out there could bear the long wait. :) You can find it here.
