DIY = Do It Yay!

Here's an adorable little dress that my mama and I constructed last month out of some awesome fabric that she found. It's a flamingo/coral pink base, with indigo, black and taupe print. It sounds so gross, I realise, when I describe it..but it is sooo unique and gorgeous! I paired it with a chunky red necklace and nude sandals.

I bought a lovely green dress in a little boutique called Red Ginger in Cairns, Australia a couple years ago. I LOVE the style of it, but can never seem to find others like it when I'm out shopping! So with this fabric, I decided to make this dress with the same pattern. My madre is a textile genius, and she had a quick look at the green dress and cut out a rough pattern based on the two panels of the dress (front and back). We made some tweaks as I kept trying it on and wanting to change things, but the end result is fab (I think!). There are halter straps if I want to wear it that way, but I tucked them in to make it a strapless number today =D.






I added a colour pop of purple on the lower lashline (No7 Metalic Eyes Pencil in 05 Purple with Urban Decay Fishnet Eyeshadow over the top).

Made anything you're proud of lately?? I'd love to see!

Mega Love xx
