Word of the Day – Majolica –

The word majolica or maiolica derives from painted pottery/tiles/earthenware from Mallorca. The trademark is the hand-painted designs usually in blues and whites but can include bright colours as well.

In Fall Winter 16/17 Dolce & Gabbana released a drop-dead Majolica linedolce-and-gabbana-winter-2017-woman-collection-702.jpg

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I found this beauty on Etsy

It was so expensive! But I had to have it! I washed it on delicate, let it air dry, folded it softly and set it aside until I had the perfect summer dress pattern. I was thinking about making another Kim dress from By Hand London but then I saw a picture of their Charlie (made from a brown curtain!) and knew it’s got to be Charlie – I downloaded the pattern (only used the bodice) and made my own 3/4 circle skirt (with the help of Mood Fabrics circle skirt calculator ) The pattern was a nice balance of easy peasy that also had challenging tidbits.

The purse was a recent birthday gift from my friend Jordan 🙂

Now I just need to find a time and place to stroll around in this!
