I've been wandering around in wellies all week thanks to all the snow that was dumped on the UK last Wednesday! We had a bit more last night but it's all melting now - it's in that horrible brown slushy stage. Quite a relief really, as I'm seriously running out of practical 'warm' outfits... but I will miss the snow!
Apart from going out tobogganing (and losing many snowball fights), I've been using my 'snow days' to do a bit of sewing. This dress is made from a huge sheet of teal corduroy that I found in a charity shop for £3. I have enough left for several other projects - I'm thinking of maybe making a cylindrical gym bag!
I used an actual pattern for this dress. It's the same pattern as this dress, minus the halterneck and bow.
As it was too cold to wear it on its own, I wore a striped t-shirt underneath and my favourite thrifted cashmere cardigan (originally from Jaeger) on top.
It's quite a bright ensemble - do these colours work together?
