Floral Skirts are my Favourite

Hello my dears,
Can you believe it is almost Friday already? Hasn't it gone quickly!

The weather isn't going to be great this weekend so I think I will stay in and do some sewing. Now I am not sure if I told you but I have been doing a sewing course for the last ten weeks and the dress I designed is almost finished, just the hemming left :)
I can't wait to show you and I'll follow up with a post all about it soon.

So for now (it's a little bit late) this is what I wore to work on... Monday I think?

I am constantly wearing my hair like this at the moment, when travelling in the morning by tube I get so warm I need my hair up off my neck and as it is not much cooler in the office it just makes sense to keep it up.

I was thinking about doing a tutorial on how to do it, is that something you would like to see on here?
I got the skirt in a charity shop for £1... bargain right? Then I took it up about 6inches but I think It needs a little bit more. What do you think?

My top is from Topshop, the pictures don't really do it justice but it is tiered and it's embroidered. I'll have to get more of a close up.
I love the little Peter Pan collar, and have developed quite an obsession for them as of late.

and of course my boots of the moment from EBay.

Here are some lady bugs, just because :)

It is so difficult at the moment to get outfit pictures done because I leave the house at 6.30 to get to work and then by them time I get home I am feeling all gross I just want to jump in the shower. I will try to do more.

Ciao for now.

  1. Oooh, where are you doing the course? I've been eyeing one up in Clapham (but have to wait until my exams are over now...).

    And 'yes' on the hair tutorial please! I am so boring with mine - and super lazy! x

  2. You look so cute! I can't wait to see your dress :-)

  3. Thanks Amber, you are just lovely!!
    I'm planning on finishing it tomorrow then I'll add pictures :)
    Also working on that one I sent you the email about, thanks for your advice :)

  4. Hi Emily, I am taking a course in Cranford just near Heathrow, it finishes next week but it's running again in September.
    It's really good because it starts with teaching you haow to draft a pattern based on your own measurements and it is only £86 for 10 weeks.
    I am actually doing it again in September and the teacher is showing us how to do skirts and trousers. Let me know if your intrested and I'll get the details for you.
    I start working on the tutorial too :)
