The print is quite busy, but the colours are fairly muted, so it's not too much to look at. The fabric only has a slight stretch, but enough that it'll add a bit of comfort and ease of wear, when I'm wearing it to the Post Office (as suggested by Shar!). It has a bit of body but wouldn't work for a proper Elisalex - but should work for my Charlotte bottom half. (Just thinking how bizarre that last sentence would sound to a non-sewer!).
Here is another pic of it draped over my bed!
So, I am v happy with my choice and v grateful to all of you for your input! :) Now I need to get cracking on the dress, I only have just over a month to get it done!
Here is another little craft/DIY project that I completed at the weekend!
A magnetic pen holder for the fridge! I can't take any credit for the ingenuity, as this was something I Pinned a while back, and so full credit goes to A Pretty Cool Life. This was literally an empty pimenton/paprika tin, 3 magnets from ebay and a tube of superglue. That's it!
And now we never have an excuse for not being able to find a pen again! Pen lids, however, are another thing altogether...
