Fine Line Between Love And Hate

When I was a teenager, I detested animal print. I associated it with everything that was cheap, common and trashy.

Oh how times have changed......

10 years on and I can't get enough of the stuff. Don't get me wrong - the shiny, stretchy fabric still leaves me feeling queasy, but check out these for classic inspiration, from the 40s through to today.

I'm progressing slowly with my next creation, but I am progressing.
Whilst I'm not convinced my attempts with black and white animal print will result in such gorgeousness, I'm going to give it a go.

And you'll be pleased to hear, my fabric neither stretches nor shines!


  1. Looking forward to see what you doing! And I'm with you on the animal prints. Used to hate them but now really like them :) I think it's how you wear them that matters and makes a difference.

  2. I'm intrigued at the outcome that you are doing, I can´t wait to see it!

  3. Really looking forward to reading your posts on this new project. Good luck!
