He's got a flour sack cape..

Dress: Handmade (Gather Kits Mortmain in Cath Kidston Townhouse fabric)
Cape: Handmade (NL6227)
Tights, Jumper + Mittens: F+F
Since it doesn't seem as though Spring is quite on it's way yet, I'm still embracing the layers. This outfit was actually one I wore a couple of weeks back, but have only just rediscovered the photos.

Tic Tac Toe sandals: Irregular Choice
Having seen some tags on Instagram lately, I'd been wondering about taking part in the Me Made March challenge, which seems to have come around so quickly. But, I've dismissed the idea of taking on the official challenge this year, as I don't really have time so it seems like unnecessary extra pressure. I also find that most days, I'll wear something which I've made as force of habit, so I don't think I need to embrace the challenge in order to encourage myself to wear more of my own clothes, which was one of the reasons I've done it in the past.

Beret: Vintage
This, for example, is a fairly typical outfit for me at the moment - handmade dress, layered with tights and a jumper, and my handmade cape. It was particularly cold so I added mittens and a beret which I've acquired from Mother and which is older than I am! 


  1. Ahhhh, this is cute!!!! I really like it!!!x

  2. That cape is so pretty! Really love this outfit. xx

  3. Flippin LOVE this cape. I would love to be able to pull one off - unfortunately I just look like an unbalanced moomin in one!

    1. Thank you. I don't know if I pull it off or not, really.

  4. Your shoes are so amazing! xo

    1. They're up there with my favourite pairs!

    1. Thank you - I'm quite proud of the way it turned out.

  6. Right, I've just ordered two metres of that CK fabric - I wanted it so badly, then forgot about it, then this post reminded me, and luckily for me it was in the sale! Keep your eyes peeled in around June 2018 when I finally do something with it!
