Midweek WIP’s

I’ve been a busy girl working on my handmade wardrobe. My Mortmain dress is nearly finished, I can’t wait to show you. This week I whipped up a simple gathered skirt using the left over fabric from my Mortmain. For the skirt I didn’t use a pattern but read a few tutorials and adapted this one by adding bright yellow hidden pockets and a fully exposed zip (like the Mortmain).

The skirt is by no means perfect but it was great practice for me, it was my first time sewing hidden pockets, gathering and adding a fully exposed zip. All in all not bad for a quick scraps project, plus I got to practice my overlocking skills again.

This Saturday I’m off to London for a blogger meet up arranged by Rachel (House of Pinheiro). I want to wear something I’ve made but I can’t decide whether to wear this skirt or not? As well as arranging the meet up Rachel organised a name tag swap. My partner was Louise, she loves pinks and greens and has a cute little teapot logo which I decided to incorporate in her name tag.

Louise sent me this pretty tag that I plan on taking with me on Saturday.

So far there are over 60 people coming to the meet up so the name tags will definitely come in handy! If you’re planning on going to the meet up I’d love to know, leave a comment below.
