rumble in the jungle

So there I was in Topshop, as I tend to be a lot these days having a teenage daughter, trying not to make any frumpy comments about the length of the shorts in there, when this dress caught my eye

Cogs started whirring in my brain and I went home and rummaged around in my bag of fabric under the stairs and found this which was bought, I think, in Kenya in the 1980s by my mum!!

The layout of the animals is slightly different but it’s the same design. Weird. I’ll get my daughter to tweet Topshop to find out where their dress fabric is printed. Meanwhile I will be wondering what to do with this beauty, as I have been wondering for many years (hence not dared put a pair of scissors to it!)
