Pretty in Pink

How much pink is too much pink? Who cares is my answer! Funnily enough despite pink being one of my favourite colours, I don’t own a lot of pink clothing. Well with my recent sewing spree, this has changed and I now have a few more pink based items in my wardrobe, so here is the first of a few outfit posts now that I’ve finally got round to making some clothes.


It was only fitting that I wore this dress to visit my flamingo friends at The Flamingo Hotel.


And my cardigan from Collectif Clothing.


I made this dress using two different patterns to give this dress a more vintage/retro feel. There’s not much to really say about the construction of this dress as I’ve used both these patterns before quite a bit and they’re are relatively simple patterns. Though I did cheat and machine the hemline due to lack of time.I didn’t bother to line this dress as the cotton was thick enough not to have to.

I’m still working on getting better at taking outfits photos, ie bossing my poor husband round more and trying to be more confident when taking photos in a public space. Also to take more photos, so I have more to choose from! I did learn from this mini shoot that standing in direct sunlight was probably not the best option and that shade works a little better, also should probably practice posing a bit more to look a lot less awkward (I have no idea what I’m doing with my feet in the last photo)! I’m also going to learn how to use the manual setting properly on my camera, I have a lot of stock to reshoot, so this should help with that matter.
