Little flowery cardy for SS11 dress it up or down...

I’ve finally finished sewing the little grey flowery cardy, its taken forever as the embroidery wasn’t quite as quick & easy as I thought it would be, however I’ve no doubt it has been easier than struggling with this thin fabric on my sewing machine.

I’ve styled the cardy up with a sparkly dress I wore for New Year’s eve at the new (nearly new) Public on the King’s Road & a fun necklace which was from M&S!

This is a perfect cardy to be worn on a dressy night or as a casual item with a racer back t & a pair of jeans (which reminds me I need to make a few racer back t’s).

I’ve also been working on the dress I’ve made out of the same flowery fabric. I’m currently in two minds on this while I love the dress I also think I should make it into a top & a skirt, which would be more wearable & in keeping with my Capsule Wardrobe Project as it will allow for more “looks”.  If I make the dress into a top & skirt I might even be able to make little undershorts so I can wear the outfit in mix & match sets for golf.  The stretchy fabric would work well in a sporting environment, I‘m thinking over night on this one! (ps don't look too closely at this dress - still lots of work to be done on it!)

In the mean time I’ve found a similar kind of dress & a lovely leather jacket which if the dress remains a dress I would like to re-create… watch this space.
