Finished - just in time - the Vinyl Vacation

Friends I promise you this is the last gaudy man-shirt I will subject you to for a while. I've posted my latest Negroni over at Stitch 56 but wanted to share with you a bit more of the nitty gritty changes I made since my first Negroni, the epic Mindblower creation of 2015.

At the same time as purchasing the most tasteful fabric in the world for my guy I also grabbed this fab retro inspired Vinyl Vacation Alexander Henry print. Is this not the perfect fabric for some Alohawear?

The Fujiyama Mama dress

About 4, maybe 5 years ago now I found out I couldn't (or rather, shouldn't) eat apples. Apparently I can't digest certain types of sugars (including fructose or f**ktose as I like to call it) without my abdomen inflating like a non-purple Violet Beauregarde.  So apples being chock full of f**cktose are off my culinary list, which makes me sad. I did so love to bite into a nice crispy Fuji. Anyway, whinge over and in a totally seamless segueway I was delighted a couple of years ago to find the most gorgeous navy seersucker printed with coral and beige apples at Spotlight. I positively squealed when I found this fabric, and for 2 years it has sat, occasionally stroked, waiting for the perfect dress pattern to make a sweet, f**cktose-free, yet appley union.
