All Hail The Gingham Queen!

It's been said before, but I'll say it again.

I bloody love gingham.

This is the second in three items I've made recently in gingham, and yes, it's exactly the same gingham from Rolls and Rems in Holloway as every other bloody gingham item on this blog.

But hell, when something works for you, it works for you, right?

I've got a bit of a gap in my wardrobe for skirts, and especially one for slightly more casual outfits for when I can't be bothered. So, a length of gingham got pleated up to become my new favourite skirt!

Bloody typical my bag is the wrong way around in this shot!

There's so little to say about this skirt, it's fully lined and has gigantic pockets I keep trying to fit the dog in - with a bit of tiny pompom trim across to make it a little bit more exciting than it really is. It's a simple dirndl skirt, with three-inch box pleats instead of the traditional gathering.

It just so happens that the day I planned to shoot this skirt, the amazing Katy from Luxulite sent me the most amazing brooch and earring set - IT'S BLOODY GINGHAM. Can you think of any accessory better suited to my severe obsession than this? They're absolutely gorgeous, and I can't recommend Luxulite any higher than I already do.

Who else is joining me in making a gingham item by 13th September to be in for a chance to win even more gingham? Of course, the self-proclaimed Gingham Queen is on it!!
