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!! 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?

Have a blessed week. X, Lekeleli

Hi guys and happy monday!! It’s been a hot minute on here and I could mention some reasons why I’ve been away but life happens, I seriously do apologize. Hope you had a great start in the new year. Praying 2018 has great things and opportunities.

Onto today’s piece. I purchased this fabric sometime back and decided to make this duster using Butterick pattern. What I love about this pattern is, its an easy and quick sew. I added darts but went for a loose fitting so I can layer when its chilly. Took quite a lot of pictures but it was windy and I wasn’t pleased with how most of them turned out.

Hallo ladies!  Hope you are all doing well. I had some time off work, decided to spend some time in Germany with family and also had a catch up with friends and former colleagues. Back to work in London and its freezing, can’t believe we are almost approaching the festive season (yay). Today I am sharing this New look 6446( view C) which is actually is jumpsuit but I left out the bodice, instead was tempted to make these wide leg pants. I loved that the pattern is an easy sew. I will definitely be making the other views in the spring.

 

Issa cold and windy day

 

Have a blessed week. x

Happy tuesday guys! Its getting chilly and gloomy in london, however let’s not pull out our black and grey pieces just yet. I am one to wear bright colors even in winter, hey, why not. When I started making this skirt, it was going to be a basic mini skirt but ending up adding a peplum to the hem. Love that it’s a good addition to my church wardrobe. If you are interested in seeing how I achieved this skirt, check previous post. Hope you are all doing well.

Stay blessed, xo
