I am sorry that this has taken me sooooo long to write one of these posts. The stupid thing is I have been sewing so much. I just haven’t had the time to share it with you. The vlog has taken up my time, plus the book launch and all the other projects I am working on. Busy as usual!
Today I am going to talk about the outfit I made for our lovely Steph’s wedding. (If you want to see what other clothes I have been making check out the vlog on June Makes or my Decades of Style 1948 Siren Sundress pattern review.)
So everyone at the wedding thought that this was a dress and I got the lovely question we dressmakers love hearing, ‘where did you get your dress from?’ But this is no dress. It is the 1950’s Box Pleat Skirt paired with the Bodice Block top from my new book, Sew Over It Vintage!
I made it out of our luxury crepe in royal blue. The Box Pleat skirt in my book was made out of this fabric in red and I have my eye on it in lemon and maybe mustard – I think I need a few of these skirts in my wardrobe! I am hoping to get a couple more colours in this so keep an eye out on the online shop.
The top is so simple to make and I love the wide neckline. I should have made it a bit longer as when I bent down it kept coming untucked! But I think this is a great little basic number for over jeans, tucked into skirts – it’s just a great ‘filler’ for your wardrobe.
Writing this post has made me realise I forgot how much I loved the skirt so I thought I would wear it again today! I’m wearing it here with my cropped breton top from H&M.
Happy Monday everyone!
