Well that week flew by! Here is a round up of what I have been wearing during #mmmay14
On day 10 I wore a Colette Mabel skirt, on the pattern she says you can make it in an hour, its true! I knocked this one up that morning! And the top I am wearing is the Cake Cabarita riff which was also surprisingly easy to make, the fabrics are Grey jersey heavy weight knit and a gorgeous Red Cotton jersey that is T-shirt weight. I am living a daydream and partying with one of my heart throbs – John Travolta!
I celebrated Conchita’s win with her on day 11 in one of my Sewaolic Renfrew tops, I am also wearing a Brigitte Scarf from Tilly’s new book ‘Love at first stitch’, if you haven’t seen this book yet, take a look, I love and want to make EVERYTHING!
I fell in love with this Riley Blake fabric as soon as it came in to stock and it is perfect as a By Hand London Anna dress, its from the new Vintage Happy range, and hey! I’m on a mountain, how did that happen?
I was back into work clothes on day 13 so my trusty Sewaholic Thurlows and a Colette Violet blouse in ivory georgette, this is available to buy as a complete kit from the website. Doing a spot of light reading during my lunch break with my work mates!
Day 14 and I parachuted back in wearing my Colette Mabel skirt and Gorgeous gingham Sewaholic Belcarra blouse.
Day 15 brought glorious sunshine to Wales so I was happy to find myself in an icecream van today, I am wearing a Colette Jasmine Blouse which is made using a gorgeous black spotty crepe fabric, again this is available as a complete kit on the website.
Day 15 was a spotty theme so I wore my glam By Hand Charlotte pencil skirt, I love this skirt as the fabric is stretchy so it is really comfortable, yet glamourous. Its a cotton mix fabric with a broderie anglaise style detail and red spots, lush! My top is the Cake Cabarita riff. And I am back ot top of the World again, only this time I have made it to the moon!!
Well it’s Saturday so I get to lounge around in my Sewaholic Tofino trousers, its also cup final day so I have ended up in Wembley! The Tofino’s are very comfy and I have used some of the Moda Honky Tonk fabric to make these, I am also wearing another Belcarra blouse!
Here’s a close up of the Honky Tonk fabric as you can’t quite make it out in the photo.
Well, that was week 2, I am busy sewing a couple more new outfits for week 3 so watch this space.
