So here's what I did with my me-time Sunday... I made a skirt!
I'm pretty proud of this little cutie, it's the first sewing project that a) I've completed in a day and b) had no help with whatsoever. Squee! It's from the Sew and Save book, which I highly recommend. The only thing I'd do differently next time is make it in a fabric with more drape. And also make it a lot smaller lol, think I'll be taking it in again at the weekend!
The cardi is made by moi also, it's from the Stitch n Bitch book and was the first cardi I ever made. Obviously, the wonkiness is totally intentional and part of the pattern (I've come along a lot since!).
This outfit's had a lot of compliments today, I was pleased as punch to tell everyone it was almost entirely handmade. Shoes are vintage '40s from my favourite Vintage V, and the t-shirt's from, umm, Topshop... That's Meg the Bicycle in the background too!
Have you made anything you're really excited about recently?
