How do you feel about blue floral prints? Matronly? Adorable? Can you pull them off? Should anyone pull them off?

  1. I always feel matronly in blue, no matter what the print. I avoid it like the plague.

  2. I love blue! And I love floral! though now I think about it I also have two unused blue florals in my stash….-I think my problem is that I love them too much and cant decide what to do with them! It possibly doesnt help that I dont often see other people wearing blue florals, and so dont get inspired to search for a pattern or replicate and outfit-but I’m sure that this week will change that!

  3. Blue is one of my favorite colors to sew with but I have very little of it in my stash. I wonder why… Anyway, I would buy more of it if I wasn’t afraid to sew slinky material. I’m too inexperienced sewing-wise to attempt such a project. Yet!

  4. I hear you on the Blue Florals, I have 6 different flavours in my stash, yet how many blue floral dresses have I sewn? big fat 0. Although your fab job of modelling your blue floral dresses has me looking at them in a whole new way. P.s Great job on the modelling, Tyra has a lot to answer for with the whole ‘smise’ thing!!

  5. Blue rocks and I love big floral prints. On a couch, yes, matronly… on a pencil skirt, rockin!
