March has been my 'Project Runway' month, because I've sewn myself a record of 3 dresses this month.

I've been going crazy over prints, and it was love at first sight when I saw this paneled fabric. Its somehow reminiscent of the prints that were seen at Mary Katrantzou's S/S 2012 show and I was inspired to pair another printed fabric with this one to create an effect like that of Mary K's dresses, but that didn't quite materialize because I couldn't find a good enough printed cloth to go with this one.

I decided to experiment with a solid coloured fabric. My choice of fabric -  a royal blue linen material. This piece is so versatile - I went a little crazy with the accessories.

Necklaces: Marni x H&M, Clutch: Korea, Leopard print flats: H&M

Here's another piece that I made from this gorgeous cotton fabric that I got from Arab Street. I like the way the prints look like waves + denim mixed together. I wanted to do a dress that was not overly sophisticated, so I decided to do a sportswear inspired racer neck + A-line skirt.
