Two's Company, Three's a crowd.....

Soaking up the rays over the weekend, wine in one hand whilst flicking through a magazine with the other. I spot these.......

Talk about double take. 'Hey I recognize that fabric'!! My Fabrics 'shoe famous'!!

You see it? 

Does it remind you of this dress and skirt .....

Take a closer look.....

I even asked the Bf and for once he'd taken notice and exclaimed 'isn't that the fabric you made a dress out of ' -Yessss!!

Now as much as I like the Fabric and the shoes, I can safely say I won't be buying them. Too much matchy matchy and three is a crowed and all that!
I'm just super excited to see the fabric I bought being used on an item for sale in the shops!!

So the shoes, if your interested are available at Shuh for £45 and are called Tallulah - this is the description that accompany's them....... 'My name is Tallulah, my first rule of thumb: I don't say where I'm going or where I'm coming from. I try to leave a little reputation behind me, so if you really need me you'll know where to find me. Clue: at schuh with my 12cm heel and tropical upper.'  -Pretty cool Huh!

Have you ever seen the same fabric you bought in for sale as other items? Did you get as excited as me?

What You should Know First:
This is easier than it looks all you need to do is be able to insert an invisible zip. The waist band was faced but I found it easier to attach the facing once the zip was in place.  This skirt also had lining but the lining fabric is treated as a single layer with the fashion fabric.
Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
