Dreamy Polk-a-dot Dress

It’s safe too say these snaps were taken pre Covid 19 lock down and on a sunny Sunday. As I’m writing this it’s tipping it down outside. Like I mentioned about these sunny snaps were captured a couple weekends ago before this stormy weather and social isolation hit Los Angeles. I mean I don’t mind the rain, being from England were used to it and I have no place to go its all good here.

Anyway back to the topic at hand, I wanted to share with you my latest sewing project. I picked up this polka-dot fabric from the local fabric store and knew I wanted too make something extra cute with it. I’m really pleased with how it turned out and very proud of those puff sleeves. It’s been such a long time since I’ve used elastic in my sewing but after a couple of YouTube videos I knew it was the only way to achieve the kind of sleeve I wanted. I’m actually thinking of roping Dave into taking some snaps of me in action while working on my next sewing project. I’m really enjoying making dresses at the moment and have some ideas for a jumpsuit and trousers, just need to find the perfect fabric for those! For now let’s enjoy these sunny snaps, I’m using them as escapism from the current uncertainty we’re all facing. I’m aiming to continue to make content to share with y’all as a little escapism sure helps me feel like my usual self.
