Made By Me #30

It's quite overwhelming that I am only just getting round to blogging dress number 30 when I finished dress 70 earlier in the week.  I know I don't have to blog them all but I kinda feel that I want to keep a record of my creations and blogging is my favourite way to do that.  I am going to try and bang out a load of posts, don't expect them to be too wordy in an attempt to catch up.   I had best refresh myself on my go to poses :) haha.

I made this dress with Easter in mind.  I was drawn to the grey background and cute but not too childish bunny rabbits.  I love a cute print but don't want all of my dresses to be suitable for a 5 year old, sometimes it is hard to find that balance!  I think I have mostly managed to walk that fine line though you might disagree when you see my pink ostrich dress. 

Dress: Made by me using Clothworks Critter Patch fabric
Shoes: Clarks
Bracelet: Buckley*

I am really lucky that doing what I love means I get sent little treats from some lovely brands.  The bracelet I am wearing in these photos was kindly sent to me by Buckley.  I absolutely adore the sentiment behind it, it is spells I Love You in Morse code.  How cool is that?!  I can't read Morse code so I really hope the dots and dashes really do spell I Love You, hehe.  What I love even more is when I am sent something I know one of my loved ones will adore and my Mum definitely has her eye on this bracelet. 

She Who Dares contacted me recently to send a hamper as a treat for an inspirational woman in my life, that would be my Mum!  She is a lucky duck.  She Who Dares are a gifting brand who aim to celebrate inspirational women, their products include perfumes, scarves, pendants and bags.  My Mum hasn't seen the hamper yet but I know she is going to love it.  You're great Mum!

    1. I've paid between £6-£17 per metre & use 2.5 metres per dress. Average is £12 a metre so £30 for the fabric plus £1 for zip/thread.

  4. It's lovely, really lovely!!! I like the fact it's a bit grownup as well as fun! Er- 70+ dresses? Can I ask, where oh where do you keep them? Is your house haaaauge?? x

    1. Haha! I have lots of wardrobes. The one in my room is now just my handmade dresses with a few of my favourite occasion dresses.

  5. Bunny print! Oh I love this one! I wish I could sew like you....!

  6. I love this print, of course. My sister was asked by her boss why her sister (ie. me) always dressed like a toddler, so clearly I have no problem with dresses fit for a 5yr old!


I love comments, thank you xx
