Butterick 5908 And McCall M6444

This whole outfit was inspired by an outfit I saw worn by the ever fashionable Mrs Victoria Beckham.

Maxi Stripes

I actually found this fabric a good few months after I had seen the maxi stripped dress which had been worn by various celebrities, my favourite being of course the ever so casual chic Miss Sandra Bullock.
I'm not a fan of stripes but what drew me to the fabric was the camel,which is a favourite of mine any season.

 I made the dress from a pattern that I drafted myself.

Vogue 8826

When I picked up this fabric I knew straight away what I wanted to make, which is normally unusual of me. I usually fall in love with the fabric first, then decide later what to make but with the pyjama trend upon us last season I decided why not? I mean it wouldn't hurt to have a similar style in my is the finished product of Vogue 8826
 I'm not too sure what the fabric is but I think it might be viscose? I selected a size 14, which turned out to be big. This is a very easy pattern to construct and the options of how you can play around with the design are endless and I will be making it again.

I didn't add the hooks and fasteners as instructed on the pattern, I personally think it looks nice with a lace vest underneath.

 Below is a picture of how you can style it if you wanted to wear it with skinny pants for the tomboy look and a killer stiletto.
Dress down option, which is my favourite on a 'fat' day.
 Will post more looks on me wearing this outfit in the future.
