Sewing History Part 4

Here are the final few items I made from 18-20 years old.

Loveheart dress. I never really liked this dress on me; it just wasn’t me so I decided to sell it.

Silky embroidered dress. I loved this dress! So easy to wear and casual enough for daytime but fancy enough for a night out.

Hello Kitty patch shift dress. This dress is so cute! Made the shift dress but it was so plain I never wore it so I added a scrap piece of lace cut into a heart, a hello kitty patch and decorative embroidery.

Polka dot dress.   Another one of my favourites. So cute. Perfect for all year. I was so sad when it didn’t fit me anymore. I found 2 pictures of me wearing it in 2008 (not great pictures – sorry!).

Basic t shirt. Just a jersey t shirt for around the house.

Blue & Pink Tutu. So I needed something to wear for a neon night during Freshers so my Mom and I cut up loads of net and made this. Very fun to make and wear. Also customised the Freshers t shirt by ripping, cutting and tying.

During university I didn’t get much time for sewing but now I have graduated and have more time I’m going to get back into it and I cannot wait! I have way too many projects planned but hopefully I will be able to focus myself and finish off all my unfinished items and begin sewing a brand new spangly wardrobe!

Do you have any unfinished sewing items?

Outfit: Bird Dress!

It was lovely and sunny last Saturday (and kind of warm too!) so I decided to bust out a dress! I chose my bird dress. It is one of the only dresses that I have brought from a store as I usually make all of my dresses but I saw it in Dorothy Perkins and could not resist it! (mainly because of the cute bird print and collar).

I love the shoes, they are the one’s I picked up at Office for just £5 in the sale. So comfy as well!

My boyfriend and I passed this lovely building on the way to lunch and I just had to share the picture:

Polka Dots!

I got a new denim shirt in the Topman sale! Not sure why they are making polka dot shirts for guys as pretty much all the guys I know would not wear a polka dot shirt. On the plus side, it meant they had a lot left in the sale reduced to £17. They have 20% student discount at the moment as well so I got my shirt for just £13.60! I chose a large so I can wear it oversized.

I love this ring! I got it from Clothes Show Live last December.

I also just realised that I have only posted pictures of me wearing denim shirts. I do have other clothes – promise 😉

What do you think about the double denim trend?

First Outfit Post!

With all the gym lately I haven’t really been out of sports wear but yesterday I went over to a friends house for a board game party. It was actually more fun than it sounds! We played some connect 4, dominos, card games and finished up with some Just Dance 2 on the Wii (yeah technically not a board game!). It was great to have a catch up with some friends from university. Here’s what I wore:
