Happy new month beautiful people! Can you believe the year is almost over, however there is a whole 29 days left. Make the most of it, enjoy everyday and spend quality time with your loved ones. Today is an exciting day for me as I’m attending a Womenswear Pattern Cutting course at the London College of Fashion for the next three weeks, I couldn’t be more thrilled. Will definitely keep you posted.

Pattern Description: Fitted dress has front band and button fly, front princess seams that release into pleats.

Pattern sizing: I cut out a size 12.

Did it look like the photo once you were done with it? Yes

Were the instructions easy to follow? Yes pretty much until the button fly. It was confusing for me, maybe because it was my first time sewing a shirt kind of bodice. I ended up putting buttons on top of the band, yeah.

What did you particularly like about the pattern? I love the simplicity of the design.

Fabric used: 100% cotton wax print.

Pattern alterations or any designs you made? Made view B which suggests a detachable collar, but I opted to sew collar to the garment.

Would you sew it again? Most definitely.

Would you recommend it to others? Yes, I think so.

 

Thanks for stopping by…

Hi guys! How are you doing?

Who doesn’t love jumpsuits ladies? They are a way to give your wardrobe an edgy touch. You can dress them up with heels or dress them down with trainers and flats. Basically I have used this pattern in the past but I made pants instead, not too sure why. Anyways, got to go. Speak to you and have a great week, xo L.

Pattern: New Look 6446

Fabric: Denim medium weight

 

 

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┬áimages 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
