Gold and sparkly!

I have suddenly become a little bit obsessed by all things gold and sparkly.  It started with these shoes which I bought for a wedding last year and they are wonderful; comfy and go with almost everything (except apparently the dress inspired by them).  So when thinking of a Christmas dress to make I started looking for sparkly fabrics and found some in Guthrie and Ghani.

I made it up using the Sew Over it, Ultimate shift dress pattern and lined it with black peachskin.  I think when I wear it, I will style it with a black belt and shoes rather than the inspiration shoes which might be a bit too OTT.

All ready for dancing now.  I even painted my toe nails to match!  If you want any more details or pictures, please check out my blog.

  1. Love the gold dress. You will sparkle this Christmas!
    Funny. I also have ended up wearing different shoes for the outfit I made to go with my favourite shoes. Still the inspiration made for a very fun challenge don’t you think?
