L-O-L-A Lola!

Pattern: Victory Patterns 'Lola'
Size: 8
Fabric: Sweatshirting and matching rib from Vend Fabrics

This is my first Victory Patterns um...pattern. I hadn't paid them much attention but one of my resolutions for 2014 is to make mostly independent patterns so I gave them a revisit.

Cinderella Part II

Pattern: Anna dress from By Hand London
Size: 12-14
Fabric: Satin from Mason's

As always with dressing up dresses it took me quite a while to decide on a pattern, but I knew I wanted a maxi and the Anna dress had been catching my eye for some time. A lot of the versions in blogland are beautiful, don't get me wrong, but more along the lines of a summer day dress so I just wasn't sure if it would posh up enough. Then I saw this glorious version courtesy of Diary of a Chain Stitcher and I knew my prayers had been answered.

Cinderella Part I


No pattern
Materials from: The Bead Shop and Mail Order Beads


Pattern: High Tea Clutch from Charlie's Aunt
Fabric: Cotton velvet, and satin from Mason's

For possibly the first time ever, I am about to show you something non-clothing that I've made! It is a rarity, but actually I really enjoyed making both these items so I think I should consider widening my repertoire more frequently!
