So, how was the Easter weekend? Aside from a broken washing machine meaning I had to handwash a week's worth of gym clothes, towels and bedding, mine was pretty good. I managed to crack on with a lot of sewing (two commissions posted off to their recipients, a present and three dresses for me). Plus I got on well at the allotment - lots planted. All pretty positive.

Flopsy heels: Irregular Choice
This is one of the aforementioned dresses. A friend recently passed on the Bette pattern from Sew Magazine and I think I've found a new favourite. I made two up this weekend and wore this budgie print one to a family lunch on Sunday.

As it was Easter, I couldn't miss an opportunity to dig out my Flopsy rabbit heels, which I still think are my favourite Irregular Choice character heel. The proportions just seem...right. Plus, they're ridiculously comfortable, and don't seem to be subject to any of the sizing inconsistency issues I've had with other pairs.

All in all, I liked the summery, spring colour palette here and had a nice, relaxed day and evening. So, a good outfit.

    1. Funny how the long weekends seem to bring the opportunity for DIY.

  4. Ah that's such a cool print, very unusual. Love the Flopsy heels too, still one of my favourites. From far away the dress looks mint but up close more yellowy/limey? Do not like the idea of handwashing something as huge as bedding!

    1. It's a fairly pale lime green, I think. I don't seem to have anything else similar in colour.
