Sew Your Own Wardrobe FAIL

It’s true, I’m a failure! I have not managed to complete my monthly make for my sew your own wardrobe challenge 😦 It’s been quite a busy month and although I did manage to make half a toile of my dress, I only actually managed to cut out the pieces for the real thing. I’m not angry, I’m just disappointed.

To jog your memory, I was attempting to make a replica of a Kim Kardashian velvet wrap dress by hacking the Nicola pattern by Victory. I found a way to make different sleeves which I’m pretty sure will work, but the unveiling will have to wait my pretties. Once I can carve out of bit of sewing time, I’m on it!

In the meantime I would just like to point out that today is my Birthday!! I tend to make such a big deal out of birthdays, especially my own, but as I regretfully get older I realise that there will come a time when there won’t be a week-long celebration of my birth… This, however is not that year so I will lap up the attention and roll around in wrapping paper until my little heart is content! I actually got my first gift 2 days early this year in the form of some duty-free perfume and a loaf of bread all the way from Malta! #blessed


I hope you all have a lovely weekend – I certainly will as I’m spending it with some of my old Uni chums living the good life in a rented cottage in the Scottish Borders.
