Made By Me #130

Happy Friday!  The sun is shining and the working week is coming to an end for me so I have my happy face on.  I am taking a class with Heather Jacks, the winner of the second series of the Great British Sewing Bee, tomorrow at Sew Me Something in Stratford so I am looking forward to a weekend of sewing and cake.  That sounds pretty much perfect to me!  I'm holding off on finishing the dress I am making for next Friday's wedding til after the class, I am so excited to get it finished and share it with you guys, I am really happy with how my outfit is coming together so far.

I made a bit of a booboo when cutting out the bodice on this dress, it wasn't quite lined up fully and as a result the very obvious rows of print started to slope on my left hand side.  I was so annoyed when I realised what I had done but thankfully managed to fix it by adjusting the shoulder seams.  I think I got away with it!  I absolutely adore this print but put off ordering it for a while because I couldn't decide between the navy and teal colourways.  Obviously I ended up with the navy but am still contemplating the teal. Where is my favourite see no evil monkey emoticon when I need him?!  I have been saving my favourite pink shoes for the weekend and not allowing myself to wear them to work.  Now I have broken them in they are so comfy and I want to wear them all the time.  I have managed to find some other shoes that fit my strict criteria, namely this blue and this mint pair.  Still hunting for some yellow shoes but may just have to give up and go for these ones.  Discount code please!

I've bought a few bags recently and thought I would share them with you in my outfit posts, it feels a bit weird holding a bag in my garden whilst posing outside my shed but I guess it is no more weird than not holding a bag!  I bought this mini suitcase bag a few weeks ago from Accessorize, isn't it just adorable!  I love the retro styling though it does make me wish I was filling it up to jet off somewhere glamorous for the weekend.  Have a great weekend whatever you're up to.
