Today I'm feeling more sad than I have in a long while and it really sucks. A combination of factors, resulting in my wavering self-confidence and just basically feeling as though I wish I could hide away from it all. I've lost count of the times over the past week or so that I've been let down by people I thought I could count on and it's kind of making my heart hurt. I don't know how else to explain it.
But, over the course of the weekend I managed to fit in some sewing, making up a couple of commissions and also finally made something for myself. I have really enjoyed making things for other people - it's a crazy awesome feeling seeing someone wearing something you've made just for them. It's been a while since I sewed for myself, though, and it was quite nice to get back into it. I used the Betty dress pattern for this crocodile print fabric which my mum bought me for my birthday.
After loving the Chatty Elephant print I'd bought from The Village Haberdashery and wearing that dress so often, I didn't think I could pass up an opportunity for a chatty crocodile dress as well, so I was very pleased to receive it! The fabric doesn't seem to be in stock anymore.
I obviously had to wear it at the first opportunity, and paired the orange with mostly grey, finished off with a pair of green floral Irregular Choice heels. I opted for my camera bag as I kind of liked the idea of two "snappy" things. Weirdo that I am.
I have no idea how to shift this sadness fug. It seems to be well and truly taking over.
