Retro or revolting???!


Mum is having a cull in her fabric stash and this was amungst a bag she gave to me yesterday. I don't think the photo here in Blogger is going to do it justice though....
The pink is actually fluro pink, yes, fluro pink. And some leaves are fluro green. There's proberbly about 2 metres here. I was thinking of making this dress for Grace with the bulk of the flowers at the bottom. Maybe orange straps??
Just a bit unsure if it would be a retro style or just cringe worthy. Grace did see it hanging after I took the photo and said " Oh, its beautiful Mummy! I love it!!! Is it for me? What a lovely dress!" and enter the award for the best over acting 3 year old now....

I LOVE it! It would look great made up in that dress or even a pair of gauchos or a breezy little top.

I think it looks gorgeous. Wish there were more of these around. The dress pattern looks really nice too.

Very noice Helen indeed, kicks my retro material for that skirt I had!!

I think a gorgeous pair of pants and a little top would look great too. Hell you have 2 m, you can do a couple of outfits!!
