It has been the hottest summer on record in Australia so I have been wearing lightweight, floaty maxi dresses made from natural fibres. I like to wear maxi dresses because it means I don’t have to shave my legs as often. Fellas?
After reading our free DIY silk scarf tunic tutorial, one of my readers sent me a photo of a Dolce & Gabbana scarf dress from their Summer Spring 2012 collection. She asked me to make her a dress from my stash of vintage silk scarves. I excitedly agreed.
I love the clash of vivid colours and bold patterns in this collection:
Why do the models look so sad? Can I give them a glass of full cream milk? Why is everybody wearing sunglasses? Sorry, this is my first fashion show.
Since I began my scarf-dress project, every night I have been dreaming in technicolour scarves. Sometimes while I am working with the scarves, two colours unite in a fiery moment which makes my heart skip a beat.
Below are some more Dolce & Gabbana scarf dresses:
I’m off to pick up my kids from school now, wearing my scarf dress and lipstick, because this is about as fancy as my life gets.
