The clouds are falling around me..

Dress: Handmade using Bette pattern and Cotton and Steel 'Gale' fabric.
Tiny Ted heels: Irregular Choice
Cloud bag: ASOS // Cardigan: Primark

I made this dress about a month ago now, and I'm not sure why it's taken me this long to get around to wearing it, but there you are. Another fail-safe Bette pattern - a free download from Sew Magazine which is probably rivalling my beloved 2444 for first place in my most-used dress patterns.

The fabric, too, had been one it's taken me a long while to get around to, which is weird because I knew which dress I would be making with it. Sometimes that seems to be the way it goes and I've had so little time for sewing lately that things are waiting even longer. I figured it seemed right to dig out my cloud clutch bag for this dress, what could be more perfect?

Another outing for my Tiny Ted heels, which I'm still loving - I can't decide whether these or Pretty Poodle are my favourite, to be honest. They're both so cute and so comfortable, which is a winning combination for me (I'm easily pleased!) 

A busy weekend again (frankly, when are they not?) but it's all fairly nice things, like two birthday parties and a trip to the safari park. I might even squeeze a Parkrun in there as well. 


  1. I'm the same, can't decide between those shoes. Hope there's new ones next season.

    1. Me too, another colour and critter would be superb!
