a little less sugar
Okay, I feel better about this dress now I have slightly de-saccharinised (?) it by adding this red belt I made today. I was going for less Disney, and more Orla Kiely. Orla Kiely is my new favourite crush. Her clothes are wonderful, sort of modernised 60's housewife in full blooming colour. And some of the names of her garments, I mean Ditsy Clover Top?
Lucy wore this red belt with her smock dress this morning, and it also looks cool with the bubble dress (if you're one of those who bought either dress). I now feel compelled to make some belts for the shop, in some vivid block colours and also in Liberty prints. Such an easy way to change an outfit! A little project for the new year.
