Sew Weekly: Imitation & Flattery

Hey guys! This week's Sew Weekly theme was 'Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery' and I posted my dress up on Mena's site, but thought you guys need to see the results as well!!!

 I'm pretty happy with it, as it's a lovely stretch fabric (all lined too!) and really comfy! I wore it to my friend's engagement party the other week, and rode my bike in it (I did wear thongs/flip flips whilst riding!!!!) and it was really great.

The back has a beautiful shape scoop! The theme was about using a commercial idea, from online or at a shop, and found this dress, but decided to use the View C in this Vogue pattern, as I wanted straps. Not sure about the halterneck yet, perhaps another dress!

It's another busy week around my house and office, so I do apologise for the quiet week online here. I'm not sure about you, but for some reason I have a list of 'Things to do' that is really really really long and it's not getting any shorter any time soon! It's a really lovely busy time!

These photos were taken BEFORE it rained down crazy on Friday, and turned into a true winter air. I wore TIGHTS and rain jackets to a music festival yesterday and am just waiting to see how the rest of the week will pan out. Melbs certainly keeps you on your toes!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend xoxo
