Just this week I posted on Instagram (@adesays) about how weekends for me is all about exploring the outdoors and running about and that short is now my go to outfit for the weekends. What then work great with shorts would be some neat nice tank/blouse which I really have a lack for.
October is a busy month, with us travelling, celebrating birthdays and the many social engagements we have in store, I hardly will have anytime to sew. I’ve been wanting to get some new stuff sewn up, so with 2 weeks till the end of the month, I’m hoping I can squeeze out some time to sew!
Anyone of you misses Me Made May like I do? I never thought I’ll miss it that much but that really gave me the shove in planning my wardrobe for most days in May. Now, I’m a lot less discipline and a lot more haphazard in choosing my daily outfits. Well.. well, definitely something I gotta do about!
2 years ago when we headed to London for our honeymoon, I knew I wanted to visit Sew Over It in Clapham. The place wasn’t difficult to find and I only wished I spent more time in the shop. There was no way I was going to leave the place without actually getting a little souvenir for memory sake. And that was when I picked up the Ultimate Shift Dress pattern.
I’ve been so busy sewing things for the house and the little bub that I totally neglected sewing for myself! I had this pattern drawn and hatched for the longest time ever but I just hadn’t found the time to stitch them all up.
The mister insisted that I make a little baby blankie for our little bub. He feels that it is essential in every kiddo’s childhood, something precious, and something handmade that grows up with you. Just like grandma’s quilted blanket or pillow when we were young.
I’ve always had a soft spot for polka dots, big ones, medium ones and even tiny ones. It is like second nature to pick up anything with polka dots on them as soon as I enter a shop. This obsession could well be attributed to the years spent in Secondary School in a green polka dotted uniform.
My energy is finally coming back! And that means it’s time to be productive! I have neglected sewing quite abit and can’t wait to jump right back into the bandwagon especially after spending many nights watching The Great British Sewing Bee. These constestants are such an inspiration. Even though Tamara didn’t win (I was rooting for her all way through), her dedication and creativity definitely did rub off on me.
