Florals and Stripes


Liberty invited me to do a guestie for their blog, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to explore my recent florals-and-stripes-combination obsession. I love the way the dainty, colourful flowers look juxtaposed with a bolder, monochrome graphic print, so I indulged in a spot of applique on a Coco dress. Since making it, I've worn the dress at least twice a week - I love it so!


If you'd like to make your own version, head over to the Liberty blog to read the tutorial. I hope you like it!
