What Helen Wore: Etsy Craft Party

Dress | Vintage Style Me
Socks | Topshop
Shoes | Car Boot Sale
Ring | Made by me
Bag | Etsy Craft Party goodie bag

I had such an ace time at the Etsy Craft Party on Friday. To attend such an event I knew I wanted to get a bit creative with my outfit. I ordered this checked dress from Vintage Style Me with summer picnics in mind. To take the picnic theme even further I decided to add some ants to the mix. I painted these little critters on using fabric ink, a paint brush and a nail art brush for the legs. It took a while but I am so happy with the results.

I am really loving Vintage Style Me at the moment.  They make the sweetest handmade clothes in some amazing fabrics. You may remember my dinosaur dress from our birthday post and I also have my eye on their fabulous tropical print after spotting it in their lookbook. I paired this dress with jelly shoes and socks for a '27 going on 7' kinda vibe. Sunshine always makes me want to dress like a child.

And here's what I created. I decided to keep it simple and so managed to embellish two photos. I love the one with the baby, just look at that cute expression. There are quite a few bits that went wrong near the start but after a while I got the hang of it. Definitely a fun way to brighten up photos and bring them to life. a bit more practice may be required before taking my needle and thread to any cherished snaps.
