The last time I blogged about anything I made for myself, was way back in April 2013 when I shared this new dress.
Since then I have done a few bits of sewing – mostly girls’ dresses, tote bags, infinity scarves and zip pouches (which, consequently I haven’t shared on here – d’oh). But this year I found a renewed desire to get making for myself.
So here are three things I’ve made for myself:
A little African print jacket
I love this fabric, so decided to make a simple little item using just three sections and some navy cotton facing. I rustled this up in under 2 hours.
Another shift dress
Perhaps no surprises here. Yes, it’s another shift dress.
What’s that? Another purple and turquoise dress? Who’d have thought it?
This time it’s a maxi which I made specifically for two occasions: 1) the April Mouse-X premier which the hubby and I helped crowdfund, and 2) my lovely friend Emma’s wedding to Stephane in Grasse on the Côte d’Azur in May. I made this using my wonderful 30th birthday present from my husband – a Supafit dress form (best dress making accessory ever!)
