Made By Me #160

Brrrrr!  After the sunshine over the weekend it is feeling positively Autumnal today.  I can't say I mind much though as it means I get to wear my lovely new coat from Sugarhill Boutique.  While I wish the rain would do one I really look forward to when it is cold enough to wear a coat though not that cold that you have to wear a coat if that makes any sense!  I had been hunting around for a full skirted navy mac when in swooped Sugarhill Boutique with the goods.  I actually squealed with delight when I saw it in their lookbook, it's perfect.  It is a lovely weight and I really like the navy and white striped lining and the rectangular plastic buckle, it is always the little details that make an item really special.  It's really nice to wear and because of the full skirt it doesn't crumple my dress underneath, one straighter raincoat I have likes to make my skirt ride up and I am forever trying to pull it back down before it gets above my underwear!  Not such a good look.

I am wearing it with dress number 160 which features one of my current favourite fabrics, I just love that angry thunder throwing cloud!  I also adore the shade of teal and that the little lightening bolt means I can totally finish off my outfit with my yellow Orla's.  Not that I need any excuse to wear my sunshine shoes but I do like to be a bit matchy matchy.  I didn't bother to take photos without the mac, if you want to see the in all it's glory you can do so here.

Dress: Made by me using Gale by Cotton & Steel



  1. Ahh, I really like this fabric - definitely on the wishlist!

  2. This coat is the perfect partner for all of your hand sewn dresses and I can't help but notice, it's NAVY! Looking gorgeous, as always! xx
