Somehow I managed to find time to finish of a dress I'd been commissioned to make. I was happily ironing it ready to pack up, when I noticed that one of the skirt panels had a couple of little holes in the fabric, as though it had been worn through. These must have been there when the fabric arrived, and I'd just not noticed, but I'm so glad I did before I sent it. Luckily I was using a fabric I've used for one of my own dresses, so I was able to cut that up to get a replacement skirt section and sent it off to it's new home. I'll certainly be checking fabric more closely when it arrives in future!
As for this outfit...it was sort of a comfort over fashion one, but finally a chance to wear my Dotty heels from Clarks. They're really comfy, and I still love the buckle detail and the dots, but I can't help wishing the heel was just a little higher. I went for a bit of a mish-mash of accessories; my swimmers dress with a pair of anchor print tights and a striped pirate handbag which I used to use daily for college books but have hardly thought of since.
How was your weekend?
