Made By Me #113

You would be right in thinking you've seen something similar from me before, I used to own a Vanity Project dress in this exact fabric!  I wasn't that keen on the bodice, too low cut for my tastes even though I had stitched it to prevent accidental spillage but that was all before I could make my own dresses to my exact requirements.  The fabric is a couple of years old so I didn't think I would find any so I was over the moon when I found a little stash at Fondant Fabrics.  I sold my Vanity Project dress to a lovely lady on instagram and purchased the fabric so I could make the dress I always wished it was! 

Perhaps I should have checked the print placement before I cut it out, I have ended up with a dubiously placed blue tit... haha.  It does make me smile whenever I notice so maybe it was meant to be.  I adore the dress, the fabric is so cheery and now I have it in my perfect dress!  AND IT HAS POCKETS.  The old dress would defo have benefited from pockets.  I apologise for my fringe doing a bit of an old man comb over in some of these photos.  It wasn't even windy it just didn't want to behave itself and play ball. 

Dress: Made by me using Wing Song fabric by Michael Miller
Shoes: Office

I have been wearing these shoes a lot since I got them, they really are the perfect height for all day comfort.  If you can find your size they are super cheap in the sale now and the burgundy version are even cheaper, £22!! I have a back up pair of the black ones and am seriously considering the burgundy ones.  They have worn really well, the leather is showing minimal wear and I can get them on and off without undoing the buckle which is always a bonus.  Talking of awesome shoes the Orla Kiely x Clarks SS15 preview has just gone up on the Clarks website.  I *need* at least three pairs, another amazing collection.  Cannot wait!



  1. Sarah yet another cracking dress! You can do no wrong!

  2. Went to buy those shoes when I got paid and the 8 had sold out, not meant to be. Love that you get the dress you wanted, exactly right xx

  3. Literally perfection in a dress. So pretty! My friend is obsessed with birds, so this would be perfect as a present......*cough* when are you going to start selling these beauties!

    And please don't worry about your blue tit ;) He's not too obvious -- not at all like those photorealistic shirts with the eyes of cats and dogs in obscene places that pratically beg people to stare at your knobs!


I love comments, thank you xx
