Vogue 9186 Revisited

Vogue 9186 Updated (1) 3

You guys, the summer seems to be holding on in London, and it’s absolutely amazing! Nothing makes me happier than hot, long days and balmy summer nights. And wearing summer dresses and other delightful projects that I get to only put on a few days a year. And because I only get to enjoy them for a short time, most of my summer clothes are stored away for the majority of the year. But that’s ok, it’s even more fun to unpack the summer wardrobe and rediscover clothes you almost forgot you had.

Though sometimes there’s a downside… Things I loved last year just don’t work for me this year anymore. Sometimes I just pass them on, and sometimes I can actually be bothered to do something about them.

This is what happened to this particular dress. You might remember it from last year, the pattern is a rather peculiar asymmetric shape that I had also added a few modifications to as well. Well, when I put it on one day the other week, I just wasn’t feeling it anymore. But it’s a really lovely fabric and I quite still like the shape, it was just the elastic gathering didn’t work for me anymore, it felt really constricting.

Now there’s a treat for you guys, an actual post containing completed projects! Well, one completed project. Praise the holiday time when I actually have time to be outside in the daylight and take pictures. Plus we found a really great new park to mix up the back grounds a bit.

AND… I get a chance to share with you one of my favourite makes of the year, which sadly didn’t make the Top 5 because I hadn’t photographed it yet.

Asymmetrical navy fun with Vogue V9186

Post 94

I’m the first to admit that I have been pretty ropey on the blogging version of sew & tell lately. That’s because I haven’t actually had loads to share. But boy, have I got a great one for you today (even if I do say so myself)! I absolutely love this funky little number, which is a very unusual twist on a nautical theme.
