Ever since I saw Angelina Jolie’s wedding veil embellished with the embroidered pictures drawn by her children, I’ve had visions of getting my nieces and nephews to scribble away so I can create something similar. Then Dolce & Gabanna featured children’s drawing in their Viva La Mamma A/W 2015 collection and my internal fashionometer went through the roof.
When, a few weeks ago I found this fabric online, someone almost had to call the emergency services.
It is IDENTICAL to a D&G Print and I was hitting “add to basket” before I had even fully realised what I was doing. I mean- LOOK AT IT!!!
So in double quick time I made myself a skirt and it really is the skirt of a thousand dreams.
Yes the photo is total and utter rubbish but after 50 snaps the camera just wouldnt get it right so I gave up. I must admit to not actually wearing it out when this photo was taken, I just couldn’t wait any longer to show it to you all. I have absolutely NOWHERE to wear this voluminous number to so you can expect to see me sashaying along the cereal isle and strutting down the frozen veg lane in Asda. Do I care? Nope. Maybe you can take a better photo for me when you see me.
I had a little extra fabric and so I’ve made three girls’ skirts (6-12 month, 12- 18 months, 3-4 years) which are listed in my Etsy shop.
I have enough fabric for one more adult skirt so if you would like to make one for you- any size- head to the shop and convo me!
*****23/01/2016- I can now get more of this fabric so will be featuring more skirts in the shop- YAY!*****
Oh Anna, you are a woman after my own heart. The Anna Scholz world is rampant with colour this season and fun accessories. It’s just a shame that today is the day the mild winter decided to get cold and nasty and right now the only colour that exists in my world is thermal. Spring- I see you on the horizon- hurry up and get into full view.
PS- I LOVE the blogger lookbook.
A huge THANK YOU to EVERYONE who has supported me and my lil Endeavour in 2015. Friends, family, customers, bloggers, likers- you all encourage me to keep going and I appreciate every last one of you. HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!
PS- The creation below will be revealed soon :-)
This week’s Item of the Week actually comprises of three separate items but as they’re all from the same collection they can be viewed as a single entry. Ok? Alright good.
It’s no secret that I love all things 1980’s so you won’t be surprised to hear that I’ve fallen for this entire set by designer Lou Taylor which brings back all kinds of New Romantic memories for me…
I was a major Adam Ant fan as a child and have memories of being 6 and doing the Prince Charming dance in my parent’s bedroom with my mom’s lipstick smeared across my face. Don’t tell.
YAY! *clapping hands wildly like a baby seal*
I love seeing photos of people in my vintage items but even more than that I love seeing people wearing clothing I’ve made. Here is Becky from Mrs Bebe Blog in the Beloved Endeavour velveteen fly button skirt. Becky has written a great review here and I just love how she has styled it!
