How do you like your jungle flamingoes? I like mine bright. Lookee here:
Woah! Bright, right? And where to place said birds? That not being a euphemism. Although given that the flamingo fabric became the bodice section of a dress it could well become my next best euphemism. “Grr, if only me birds would face the same way.”
I really did want them to face the same way. The bodice is self-lined see, so there was a decision to be made about which flamingoes should be on top, the ones wading in water or the ones loafing about in lush grass. The water on the left won out.
The bodice is from the ‘Liza’ wrap dress. The ‘Liza’ wrap dress is a pattern for knits/jersey/stretch that can be found in the book Famous Frocks: The Little Black Dress: Patterns for 20 Garments Inspired by Fashion Icons.
The other ‘thing’ that is a necessity given the current ambient temperature here is a cup of warm cocoa. In my favourite mug.
Boing, boing, boing.
Happy Jungle January One and All.
