So there was actually no reason for me to buy the beige flower fabric. But... it was on sale and I loved the pattern and I'm a fabric addict so I couldn't help myself.
The first plan was to make something for my Mum out of it, because she likes and wears these kinds of colours but in the end I made myself a dress out of it anyway.
And as so very often I turned out to really like it! And I can say that since I made this a few more beige-ish garments have moved into my closet.
The pattern is completely self-drafted, for the skirt I used this very useful tutorial by burdastyle and the top is basically just a square with holes for the arms and neck ;)
Do you guys do that as well? Buy fabrics even though it's not your colour or something? And do you think there are colours you shouldn't wear if you look a certain way? Oh and how do you like my new retro sunglasses? I still feel a tiny bit silly with them on... I have to get used to the look :D
So many many questions... :)
