We won't stop running till we reach the sun..

Dress: Handmade (Simplicity 2444)
Jacket: Primark // Bag: Vintage
Why Not heels: Irregular Choice

Another quick outfit catch up post. Isn't it funny how life seems to go in circles. A couple of weeks ago I managed to make plenty of time to sew, and am still catching up on posting the outfit photos of the new dresses I've made. In contrast, this week everything else seems to have taken over - four weekday nights out of five this week have been spent at various guiding meetings and the fifth at the theatre. Around this I've had to fit in baking for an event and making a couple of commissioned projects, so all sewing time has been for others, not for me. 

I'm taking more and more commissions lately - it's helping me function, whilst times have been a bit tougher than usual. I'm always happy to receive enquiries. Maybe I'll put together a post at some point of some of the things I've been making. 

So, this fabric is another which has been stashed away in the trolley for an absolute age. I wasn't quite sure what to make from it - I'd not realised that I had enough for a dress, so when I discovered that and convinced myself that the print wasn't too childish (says the girl who has more than one dinosaur print dress), I whipped up another of my favourite pattern - Simplicity 2444

Losing no time, I wore it the next day with a green leather jacket, some polka dot tights and my trusty Why Not shoes. It was election day and it kind of amused me to be able to make decisions with my feet.


  1. If I could get dalek or TARDIS material THAT I didn't have to ship from America for a bomb, I would so commission you to make me a dress. This is a ridiculously cure outfit. X

    1. Ah, that would be amazing. I'll keep an eye out and let you know if I spot any.

  2. Such a cute outfit! That dress is so pretty - I love the print especially. :)

  3. Wow, it sounds like you week has been so hectic. How do you ever find time to blog, as well?! Lol. Loving this outfit on you, especially the jacket. I love the colour. xx

    1. I have no idea - I do sometimes have a little spurt of blogging.
