It’s been busy couple of weeks so this is coming a little later than I expected. However, I am resisting the urge to apologize because it’s my blog and that means I don’t have to apologise for not writing this sooner.

Basically you'd buy a length & the elastic has already created the gathered waist. I've never seen… Continue reading Liberty Skirt
Apologies to anyone who saw this post before it had any words on it- I was trying to get to grips with the WordPress app on my phone and I pressed the wrong buttons. This weekend's Me-Made-May weekend round up is a double whammy. Work and other projects have been taking up most of my… Continue reading Me-Made-May ’16 Weekend’s 3 & 4
This weekend was so summery, it caught me off guard. I felt like I needed some kind of official email or something in advance, telling me tights weren't needed. Saturday 7th On Saturday I took Michael on a surprise trip to see Matilda the Musical on a gloriously sunny day in London. I brought a… Continue reading Me-Made-May ’16: Weekend 2
All of you who follow me on Instagram saw a sneak peek of this project, and I can now show you all the finished product! I really enjoyed this one. This refashion starts with a man's XL shirt I found on Ebay. I know, it's a darn good look for me. I bought it with the idea of refashioning,… Continue reading Refashioned Peep Show Shirt
