Allsorts of fun

So, a little while ago I blogged about some fabulous vintage fabric I had found that looked remarkably like a liquorice allsort. Well, it finally transformed into a dress.



I was so taken with the results that I found myself searching for other allsort-inspired goodness. The funny thing is I don't even like liquorice - but the colours, the bold graphic lines and shapes, they're just so appealing.
