Fever London are a brand I already keep my beady eye on, I have been to their London store before and love having a browse of their collection stocked at my local retailer, Aspire Style. Their pretty dresses are right up my street, think lots of 50's silhouettes and some to die for evening wear. And the coats. Oh the coats. I absolutely adore the Iris coat especially in the forest green colour way. Drool worthy.
We kicked off the crafting by making a corsage using fabric from Fever's clothing. I was wearing my green coat so decided that the striped chiffon was the perfect match. Unfortunately I didn't really think through my choice of fabric, it didn't have enough body to give it any structure so I had to add lots of stitches to stop it from flopping all over the place.
I took along some of the jam jars we had left over from our wedding to decorate. They already had the date and our names etched on them so I decided to keep it simple and just add a bit of lace and wooden heart buttons. Using the glue gun to attach the lace was incredibly satisfying. We all very much enjoyed getting glue all over the place.
Finally we all made drawstring bags. They were super easy to make and would take minutes to whip up on a sewing machine. I decided to embellish my already busy fabric with a big bow and leave it at that. Look at how proud Lauren is with hers!
My two favourite pieces were the Iris coat, as mentioned above, shown below in the charcoal colour way and the Doris skirt. I also adore the names they give their garments, my favourites all seem to have 'old lady' names.
One thing I didn't know is Fever London have recently launched a home wear collection. And just like their clothes it is beautiful! I can't stop thinking about the teacup plates.
Jaclyn took lots of beautiful photos, more of which can be seen here and Fever took some funny photos of us all which can be seen here. It was a lovely evening with great company, can we do it again soon please Fever?!
