Some Lovely Links

Whew it's so freakin hot in Brissy this weekend! Makes me realise how many more light summer tops I need, lucky I have one on the go at the moment cant wait to get it finished. 

In the meantime, here are some Lovely Links that have kept me occupied on Pinterest this week.

I love this Tutorial on Cotton & Curls about tailoring a thrifted  blazer. They are always too boxy on me.

I am so in love with these pink sandals from Seed Heritage, such a great way to add some color to a otherwise neutral outfit.

I have my eye on this lovely Silk Twill fabric from Tessuti, I think it would look fantastic as a Tiny Pocket Tank and I have a gift voucher to spend with them. Bonus!

I usually get totally stumped about what to wear in this heat. I found this cute outfit on Pinterest, I am hoping to put my own version of this together real soon.

I've found a fabulous Aussie Blog called Slow Your Home. This post on Pursuing Your Passion really struck a chord with me as I'm contemplating a change in direction for my career. Such a great blog.

Hope you're not melting away like I am, nothing like the hot weather to get my sewing creativity firing!

Till next time.

I'm going dotty!

I finished this top a few weeks ago, been so busy I haven't had the chance of taking photos of it earlier. 

It's pretty safe to say that I really love this top. It is made from a silk (maybe a blend cant remember) which I brought from the Fabric Store last summer. The fabric was surprisingly easy to sew up, apart from the hem which gave me so much grief due to my insistence on having a curved hem. 

This is a self drafted top, based loosely on an item that I already had in my cupboard. The back is slightly longer than the front so has some decent butt coverage.

I intend to make many more of these, probably in a cotton so the hems don't drive me so crazy!

Till next time!

What's on the sewing table!

Here's a little sneaky peak on what I'm working on at the moment. 

I took advantage of the long weekend and started sewing up this baby. I'm in love already!

I love this Peplum Top Tutorial by Scared Stitchless, I am planning a green version I just need to find the right fabric.

I found this awesome wall art via Pinterest, just a matter of taking some cool nature shots and compile them onto some canvas.

I love this combo of Red Pants and Navy Polka Dots. I think the top would be fairly easy to make, this one is going on my to do list.
