Send In The Clowns

by Erin on July 26, 2010

I'm not sure how I came across this dress, but I'm glad I did:

Clowns
 

It's hard to see, but those are little clowns. In some kind of Escher castle. Why? I don't know. 

If you want to inspire a WTF? from everyone who stands close enough to you to see the clowns, you can find this dress at MissMucho's Etsy shop

(And yes, I know about this.)

She’s back!!!! – referring to the server move. Whew!

I love whacky fabric patterns, particularly when they are subtle, like this one (if you can call anything bright yellow subtle).

I agree with Birgit – subtle wackyness is the way to go!

Have you seen Jane Austen’s Fight Club on YouTube yet? I thought you would appreciate it. :)

Thank you for giving me the words to describe my opinion of clowns. And it is subtle here – at first I was excited to see that interesting, unexpected castle print, and THEN those tiny aqua interlopers became clear to me.
Ick.
It is a pretty dress pattern, though.

I am so happy that you’re back! I was terribly, terribly worried! I love the style of this dress, but I’m not crazy about the fabric.

Cute style but horrific clowns. I’d rather stick needles in my eyes than wear this LOL

I wanted to bring up Selfish Seamstress’ post, but I was beat to it. :D

haha I love the “subtle wackyness” description. It’s too crazy for me to wear though, I can’t believe some of the random patterns that exist.

WTF is the first thing that came to my mind. Not sure about wacky!
