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 ūüôā

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 FRAN√áOISE¬†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¬†FRAN√áOISE 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.
