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?
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.
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.
