The Clover Dress

From day…IMG_3608

To night!IMG_3571

A dress that can easily go from day to night. I haven’t found that many that actually can. Either they’re too dressy for daytime wear or too casj for cocktails. This one just works though! From tights and boots for day to heels for night, it’s simple but effective. Both from New Look.

Details…

The skirt is actually my Clover Dress in paisley polyester – pattern review and styling posts coming soon…

My lovely Gran knitted me the pretty, cropped, pastel blue jumper. It was just meant to be a tester piece as she didn’t have much of the wool left, but I loved the colour so much I asked if she could just do me a cropped version. I love it!

Finally, I made the coat using Burda pattern 6844. I think it’s one of the best things I’ve made, mostly because I challenged myself with something that wasn’t a dress! A full blog post will be coming soon on this one – just as soon as I brave the buttons…

So it’s all handmade apart from the leggings – but plain black leggings? They don’t really count. I’m still after an overlocker to make my own of those. And they wouldn’t be black. These are £3 Primark beauties!

All styled with a necklace and bag from Accessorize, and Topshop boots. I love a good statement necklace and Accessorize never disappoints. I’ve also found that although Topshop boots are a little bit more pricey, they’re always the nicest and good quality.
