Style Sunday: Statement Print Shift

August 25, 2013 | Style | No Comments

I’m certain that I’m not alone when I say that I’ve been known to go all weak at the knees over a pretty print fabric.

I’m serious, I can’t turn down a dress with a loud statement print.

I have frock with ponies, dogs, birds, skulls – you name it, I either have it or am seriously coveting it. I’m in pretty good company when it comes to this addiction for luscious loud prints – when I spotted the always stylish Holly Willoughby sporting this divine Palm Tree Shift Dress from Jaeger – currently on sale from £160 down to £99 – I knew I just had to find my own handmade version.

So, here’s what I’ve got…
