Happy Easter! ūüôā

We’re officially in Spring now, so I was feeling inspired to make something cute for the warmer months. I’ve seen these off the shoulder/bardot gypsy top things everywhere, but ¬£22-27 (from Zara¬†and Asos below)seems pretty steep when these tops really have nothing to them.Two strips of fabric and some elastic- that’s it. I spent ¬£3.99 for a metre of cute sunflower fabric and 40p for 2 metres of elastic. It literally took about an hour too.

I really had a blast with this make because it was really quick and it feels so so fun to wear. I can’t encourage you strongly enough to try this one out for yourself, and join me in some subtle shoulder flashing.

ME POSING EMBARRASSINGLY:

 

Groovy High Neck Co-ord Set (¬£7.99)

Hello My Pretties!

I know I’ve been pretty absent of late so sorry about that. As you can see, however, I sure have returned with a bang. I bought this crazy wax print fabric from a great shop on Goldhawk Road (this is near Westfield). They have tonnes of gaudy stuff like this, for¬†anybody else with taste as loco as mine. I bought about a metre and a half for ¬£7.50.

I decided to use it to make a co-ord set because¬†co-ords are sooo useful, especially when you have a loud fabric. You can wear both items when you’re feeling sassy, and just put the skirt on with a black roll neck on a more demure day. You make a simple top and skirt, and end up basically getting a dress for free. The skirt I made here uses the same method as my Creepy Kitty Skirt, so below I’ve just got the instructions for the cool 60’s style top, complete with a little collar, and a super cute button back (check out the turquoise button below). I was pretty inspired by this set from Mango, which totals at ¬£65.98. I find midis really difficult to pull off though, so have gone for something shorter and more streamlined.

I hope y’all will have a crack at this, and ¬†as always, I love to hear from you when you have a go so keep in touch!
