Hi guys! Hope y’all doing well. Gingham has been trending for years, and to say I haven’t owned a gingham any until now is actually crazy. Its such a classy print. After going through a images on Pinterest, I took to the fabric store in Brixton and found this light cotton gingham.
A while back I purchased this Pattern cutting for Women’s wear by Winifred Aldrich.
Basically this asymmetrical skirt is from a basic skirt block by inserting flare into panels by cutting and spreading. I bet a stripped fabric would also look amazing. I can not wait to make more garments from this book. Have a great week guys. Xo, Lekeleli
Hi Guys! Hope y’ all had a good weekend. Is there a thing as selfish sewing? Well I am totally guilty, recently I’ve been just sewing up for myself. This polka dot dress is from a few weeks ago, I wore it to church and some ladies liked it haha. Last weekend as I was sorting out my sewing space I couldn’t help but get rid of some patterns, however I’m slowly restocking my pattern stash which is exciting. So until next time, wishing a good start in the week. God bless, xx Lekeleli.
Hi guys!! How have you been? Hope your summer has been great and that you enjoyed spending time with your loved ones. I feel like I have been away for an entire season, lol but seriously though sometimes its good to take a break. I am writing with blog post on a Sunday afternoon cuddled up in comfy lounge wear, it is pouring outside the entire day. Over the past few weeks, I have been sewing up some things, this off the shoulder top is self drafted. Combined with this high waist Zara vintage jeans, it gave me seventies vibes and clearly I was feeling myself haha. Are wide leg jeans/ trousers the new skinny jeans?
Hi guys! How are you doing? Hope you had a lovely weekend!
As someone who is always freezing, it’s only been this week I’ve felt that spring has actually sprung. Everybody seems to be in better moods, yay. Now that we are putting the heavy coats away, I am starting to be a little insecure with myself. I have gained a few, its not a secret. I want to be fitter (don’t we all want that). So I’m trying to eat healthy and exercise, I simply don’t believe in starving myself.
On to today’s make, I was inspired by a kimono I purchased ages ago. The fabric is light weight hence I had to line it. I paired it with my fav blue jeans and these boots from Zara.
Hello guys. Hope y’all doing well. Like many, I am so happy the beast from the east is gone. The snow was beautiful for a day or two until the roads became slippery and realized I actually didn’t own any shoes for such kind of weather. I can not wait for spring literally.
Unto today’s post, you might remember this fabric from a previous garment I made in the past and yeah blue is one of my favor colors . This bell sleeves top was acheived from a bodice pattern I drafted, to add some fun to the top, I incorporated bell sleeves and added belts to snatch the waist (well kind of) haha.
