Yellow Fever

Hey all, it’s yellow day on EBEW – and look at me being a good girl and wearing yellow.  And you know what it almost didn’t happen because Chris came home so late from work we almost ran out of light! hehe

I’m actually rather proud of myself because I always (read: ALWAYS) forget to wear the right thing on EBEW days, so i’m thrilled that i remembered! yay! Pat on the back meg…

And also, i’m happy to say that I remembered to wear this dress the right way round this time. If you recall, I made it from vintage pillowcases – and you know what? Its still one of my favourites.  So glad i cleaned out my closet and was reunited again.

So did you wear yellow today my darlings?!

you look beautiful!
Yesterday’s max in Perth was 12.6 degrees C, which is totally freezing (by our standards!), so I’m envying the summery look right now!!!

Your dress is adorable! Yay for repurposing that awesome fabric! I’ve heard about EBEW here and there on blogs but have never visited the site. Coincidentally, I did wear yellow today.

SO cute! I continue to be amazed by your creative skills – a dress from pillow covers?? So Scarlett O’Hara of you :)

And I actually got pictures and remembered that today was EBEW – a double miracle!

Hello,

I just found your blog via EBEW. Gosh, that is a gorgous dress! I can’t believe you made this dress … from pillowcases. You are a clever lady!

I love how this dress can be worn more than one way, and the detailing at the back is so pretty! Also, I love the pattern and how the white gives it a little something special!
