On my giant charity shopping spree the other week I made some time for a quick (...long) visit to a material shop. After 40 minutes I emerged from the shop with some green tartan, some grey suiting material and this spectacular, reversible, floral fabric!
This post is named 'Dress #2' because the dress is made with exactly the same pattern as the tweed one. I plan to make yet another one with the grey suiting material - to be my 'business dress' for university, haha. And today I finished making a slightly adapted version out of the green tartan fabric (I'll show you that one later!). They're the simplest thing ever to make - two identical panels sewn together, with little 'princess' sleeves (I traced the sleeves roughly from one of my shirts). Who knows, I might even make my prom dress using the same pattern!
In keeping with the 80s style fabric, I styled the dress with my denim jacket and thrifted purple belt. And voila - an outfit suitable for day and night :).
Anyway, I've been thinking - this blog has started to focus a lot more on thrifting & sewing in recent months. And so I was wondering what you'd like to see more of! Style icons, how-to guides, photoshoots, debates (!), film reviews, giveaways, favourite designers - or more of the 'what I wore' ones?
What are your favourite things to read about? Tell me what you think - I'm listening :D.
