My heart is on my sleeve..

Dress: Handmade ('Bette' pattern from Sew Magazine)
Necklace: Matalan
Bag: George* // Sandals: Marks + Spencer // Cardigan: Tu

Well, no hearts but something about wearing my feelings anyway. These sloths were the perfect choice for one of my outfits this week, as I am just feeling pretty sloth-like. I don't seem to be able to get enough sleep lately so seem to just be existing, in a kind of sleepy fug. It really sucks.

But, this dress doesn't. I have used the free 'Bette' dress pattern from Sew Magazine so many times now. It's been pretty much perfect on most of my makes, although the soft double gauze of this sloth fabric doesn't seem to work very well with the fact that I finished the neckline with bias binding (I'm a lazy seamstress, what can I say?!) so the neckline seems wider than it should be and wider than it is on other Bette dresses I've made. Waah.

A pretty pale blue handbag from George, and some very low (for me) black sandals which I'd forgotten I had until recently. Very comfortable but perhaps not the most flattering.


  1. You look amazing, and that print is so damn cute! xx
