Black n’ White – Simplicity 1699

I have been trying to blog about this dress for a few weeks now. Finding the time to take pictures seems nigh on impossible sometimes when you work and have 2 children! This weekend I found five minutes and quickly managed to get a few snaps in before darkness drew.1699

I totally love this dress! The fabric and pattern work so well together.

LWC – Simplicity 1699

I’m wearing my favourite shoes too! It was my birthday on Halloween so on my day off I dragged hubby round Camden market (my favourite place to shop). As soon as I saw these shoes I had to have them. I think they work quite well with the monochrome look 🙂

LWC – Simplicity 1699

This pattern is super easy to put together. I have already made this pattern in a stiffer cotton fabric. It’s interesting to see how the the two different dresses look due to the different fabric choice. I really like this pattern, I can really see myself making this again!

New patterns all around me

I have been looking around online and reading the blogs that I follow over the past week and I have to say that there are some amazing patterns just released or about to be released by British designers. Tilly and the Buttons has an awesome 60’s shift dress FRANÇOISE and the Kim dress from the By Hand London is fab too!

I think I may have to get myself some of this action.  The Kim Dress has not officially been released yet but the FRANÇOISE is available to buy.  There’s also a sweet competition that Tilly has organised where you can win a £500 sewing machine and other runners up prizes.  Details can be found here.
