@sewingj if we see someone in the street wearing it we will come up and talk to you as we will know it's you.  :D

Glad you've decided to go for it. Lovely fabric.

Right - you`ve all persuaded me but I am going to send for a sample first mainly to check the colours

If I make it and people laugh at me in the street I shall hold you all responsible

Well at least you will be noticed and have your 15 minutes of fame hehe :)

You'll be fine. Have you looked at other flamingo patterns  too?  Might be worth having a look round before you commit yourself either way. I saw a website that had pages of the flamingo fabric whilst I was looking at some chambray before. Will try to find the link again tomorrow if you want?

If you make it and people laugh at you in public you can send it to me to wear!

Another yes vote for the flamingos.  They seem quite tasteful to me.

I wouldn't think twice about wearing them and I'm in the same age range
