Wardrobe Wednesday -18 - I'm Being a Rebel! Make My Week #18

So the theme for the month is a REMIX - which means I am supposed to choose something from my wardrobe and work it a different way each week.....which will be a great challenge for me because I'm a variety lover - as in, I'd like to wear something different e.v.e.r.y day

However, I digress, I will join on this (when I choose what to remix) but I needed to show you my new dress.

This is my 'Let's Hear It for the Boys' dress. I was given this fabric from an old-fashioned stash and originally I thought I would make something for the boys from it but then I got a little inspiration and decided to use this sexy wiggle dress pattern again (with a straight neckline this time).

The fabric has a great little texture in it almost snake-skin-ish but really miniature.
So I'll remix next week!

In the mean time check out other lovelies here

Looks like you remixed it - the red cardi makes it look like a skirt? What is the print - the dress is drop dead gorgeous. x

I'm in agreement with the comments above - it is a remix! You are such an amazing seamstress!

I think because it is a good shape for me it works. I like the yellow in it too. The print is old school racing cars

Miriam said...

I love the fabric choice.... And you soooo suit the wiggle!!! x

Miriam said...

It's great when you find a shape that works for you. The wiggle is good for me but not so practical for bike riding unfortunately! :o)
