knit dress

Pinkie & the Rib (Vintage Simplicity 8977)

Hey guys, hope you are enjoying Easter (or the bank holiday, as the case may be)!

As to myself, I’m finally getting around to posting about a little dress that I made ages ago (I’m sure you’re seeing a pattern here…). I took picture last weekend, while enjoying the fantastic weather we had in London. In hindsight, good call, Batman, because it went back to being freezing here (although quite sunny) and those toes would not have lasted in sandals even for a few seconds. And I had it in my head that this dress requires chunky heels. I feel like I’m impersonating Mimi G while wearing this dress and you can’t do Mimi G without the heels.

Hey Georgia, naughty or nice?

 

BHL Georgia Black Embossed Scuba (2015) #10

Happy holidays, sewosphere! A bit after the fact, but I hope you had the loveliest time, got the best pressies and generally merrily indulged in great food, drink and laziness.

I myself just emerged from food coma after 3 days of eating, watching just about every cartoon under the sun and generally doing nothing. I even did a bit of sewing, or rather mending and tweaking existing projects last night and finally got a chance to take pictures for a second to last blog post in 2015. Last one coming on Thursday, and it will be a festive one, seeing as it’s the blogoversary and all… Stay tuned, as there will be prizes involved…

Righty ho, back to this little lady. Haaaaaaave you met Georgia? She is one of the lovelies that came out of the hands of Elisalex & Co over at By Hand London. At the end of November, I had the pleasure of meeting Elisalex at the Badger & Earl #Sewathon2015 and she kindly offered me a copy of the the pattern, as I had this crazy idea to make it in scuba (although it’s actually meant for wovens).
