Ah a nice simple project in a simple cotton, which doesn’t have a mind of it’s own (unlike that tricky chiffon!). This is the second project I made from the dress shown below. The first being this one… Literally all … Continue reading
I’m so proud of myself recently – I have been into at least 3 fabric/ haberdashery / second hand stores recently and (despite stroking and cooing over some beautiful fabrics / notions / patterns etc.) I have purged the urge … Continue reading
Seeing as it’s half term this week, I have decided to make myself a fairly extensive sewing to do list. Top of that list is remaking me-made clothes that have seen better days or just aren’t me anymore. (I don’t … Continue reading
I’m sure many of you will understand the joy I have bringing this latest post and project to my blog. 1. because it fits perfectly with my latest post on Stashbusting (albeit not knowingly as I finished the skirt before … Continue reading
Argh, just found out I’m going to Hawaii in May!! Martin is speaking at a conference there and I’m allowed to take some unpaid leave and go and join him for a week. I’ve never been quite so far away from home! Sooo excited!! (Although on a side note, slightly less thrilled about the very long haul flight all on my own – tempted to get an e-reader like a kindle or a kobo – any opinions on those?)
First things first though, I need some advice, what do I pack, what do I wear, what do I need to make? Any tips on what it’s like there would be much appreciated. I love Blair Waldorf – how would she style up Hawaii chic?!
I’ve been making some inspiration collages of things I like, but I don’t really know what to expect whether and style wise so would love any advice.
Don’t judge, but 2 of my favourite parts of holidays are: packing and coming up with activities and itineraries for our visit. Basically they both involve me making lists and I LOVE making lists! I just know that the earlier I start thinking about what to wear and take, the more I can make myself rather than having to buy things. It would be really nice if I could use things again in the UK although I can’t imagine it ever getting warm here again.
NB. If you happen to stumble across my blog and see a photo of yours, please let me know and I will link or credit it, lots of these photos came from images I’ve saved over time and I’m not sure where I got them all from. And of course let me know if you’re not happy that they’re up.
