Top (remixed): Sussan
Skirt: American Apparel
Shoes: Poetic License
Happy easter, everyone!
I’ve had this project in mind for a few months now, and this long weekend gave me an opportunity to have a bit of a go.
It’s a simple case of arithmetic.
Take one virtually unworn dress:
Dress: Sussan –
I bought this dress years ago, as the embroidered flowers were too beautiful to pass on, but it was just a bit too… virginal for me to wear with any regularity. Quite apart from the fact that the linen fabric was easily crushable and transparent enough to require very carefully chosen underwear.
Add one to-be-retired cardigan:
Trousers: Grace Hill @ Ezibuy
Don’t get me wrong, I like this top – but it’s just too similar to another top in my bursting-at-the-seams wardrobe. So it was either a case or a re-mix, or a retire. Sigh. I should really stop impulse buying.
= one brand-new (ish) floral applique top.
I’m still not quite sure I made the right decision, but it was a fun easter project regardless. The appliques are just stuck on with fabric glue, and would be easy enough to remove with solvent if I change my mind.
The dress, however, is unsalvegable:
At the end of the day, there were a lot more appliques than I could have possibly used, and I have plenty of the pink and blue blossoms left – Any ideas what I should do with them?
