I’m really feeling pastel colours at the moment. I blame Kate from scathingly brilliant: http://scathingly-brilliant.blogspot.co.uk/ Her outfits are so cute (and minty).
Anyway, if you remember when I posted my Neapolitan ice cream skirt I said “never again” when it came to sewing it. Well. I sewed another one. This time it’s a hand beaded mint choc chip skirt. It looks so good, but I felt so bad after beading it. It took me about 2 and a half hours to complete the choc chips. Never. Again.
I paired it with the vintage cardigan I bought from shop 55 because it works so well for the sickly sweet ice cream vibe I’m going for. I’ve also taken to layering my fishnetty tights over plainish ones to add texture.
So yeah. The moral of the story is, don’t make ice cream skirts or hand bead them if you value your sanity.
