Outfit of the Week | June 2nd

Happy June 2nd!

Today I am wearing another of my April Makes.

The print on the fabric used to make this dress is so beautiful. I wish I had more!

I used vogue pattern v895 to make this dress. At first I was nervous to make it in a print, but I think it turned out great!

The fit on this dress is very flattering and true to measurements. I will definitely be making more of this dress.

Until next time,

Outfit of the Week | May 12th

Hi everyone,

Welcome back to my blog.

My outfit of the week this week is a co-ord set from my April Makes.

The skirt was make using a vintage Buttericks pattern.

The top was make using the shell of an old PU top.

Together the outfit is dazzling. As far as interesting makes goes this hands down wins the top prize for April.

I had my heart set on making a skirt out of this fabric, and the top just ended up being happy accident that just worked out well.

You can see this outfit in motion on my YouTube Channel.

Until next time,

Outfit of the Week | Mar 24th

Welcome back to my blog.

This week I’m wearing a shirt I made in March with my trousers from February. And a jacket that I made mid/end last year.

I was going for a minimal look this week.

Striped back. Neutral block colours.

I added the floral jacket for an accent of Spring. And because the weather in England can not be trusted.

The Simplicity pattern used to make the jacket is very versatile. I have made 2 versions already and have plans to make a few more.

I will talk more about the shirt in my March Makes video, subscribe to my YouTube channel to see more.

Until next time,

Ax

Outfit of the Week | Mar 17th

Welcome back to my blog.

This week I’m wearing a, self-drafted, front split sequin pencil skirt with a Miss Selfridge slogan t, championing the slogan and sequin trend.

The skirt is part of a set. I made a sequin co-ord for a Pretty Girls Sew challenge at the end of 2015. It was the first thing I ever made out of sequins. I love it. The batwing sleeves of the top makes it harder to wear, as it doesn’t sit comfortably under a coat or jacket.

The mix of casual, smart and glamour, makes this one of my favourite outfits.

The sequins on the fabric I used lay flat. So most people don’t realise they are sequins until they get close. I strongly recommend lining sequin fabric, this self-drafted skirt is not lined. Big mistake, my legs get covered in little scratches after a days wear. But that won’t stop me from wearing it!

Until next time,

Ax

Outfit of the Week | Mar 10th

Welcome back to my blog.

This week I’m wearing a chambray jacket I made in February (2017), a cami top I made a couple of years ago with a gifted jacquard skirt.

I’m going to have to recreate this skirt, it’s so flattering and I always get complimented on it.

In the summer. Or at the very least when it gets hotter. In England who knows when that will be. I’ll pair this outfit with some embellished sandals to give it a little something extra.

Until next time,

Ax

Outfit of the Week | Feb 3rd

Happy February everyone.

With this weeks outfit I am starting my “Bring on Spring” campaign.

February is the last month of Winter and the month that signals change.

So I’m putting my best foot forward in my M&S boots and continuing my own personal changes.

Until next time,

Ax
