I’m still full of holiday cheer so I’m running another promotion for free worldwide shipping. Don’t say I’m not good to you!
What a glorious, glorious day today has turned out to be. So much so that I put aside by usual DM boot and jeans combo and stepped into my brand spanking Chubby Checker skirt. I wore my new Simply Be shoes and my shades and nobody could tell me A THING as I sashayed through the Midlands streets like a technicolour diva.
If there was anyone who didn’t approve of me trying to outshine the sun they kept their opinions to themselves. I was far too busy looking radiant to notice anyhow.

New shop items! I’ve been a busy bee sewing lots of lovely clothes for you all, the first of which are now in my Etsy shop, Beloved Endeavour. Items are available to order now in sizes 16- 30 (other sizes by request) so head over to the site!
Emily from Something Gold, Something Blue in her Beloved Endeavour Skirt of a Thousand Dreams. Currently out of stock (many thanks to everyone who ordered one!) but as soon as the fabric is available again (I’ve exhausted my supplier’s warehouse) I will let you know!
Ever since I saw Angelina Jolie’s wedding veil embellished with the embroidered pictures drawn by her children, I’ve had visions of getting my nieces and nephews to scribble away so I can create something similar. Then Dolce & Gabanna featured children’s drawing in their Viva La Mamma A/W 2015 collection and my internal fashionometer went through the roof.
When, a few weeks ago I found this fabric online, someone almost had to call the emergency services.
It is IDENTICAL to a D&G Print and I was hitting “add to basket” before I had even fully realised what I was doing. I mean- LOOK AT IT!!!
So in double quick time I made myself a skirt and it really is the skirt of a thousand dreams.
Yes the photo is total and utter rubbish but after 50 snaps the camera just wouldnt get it right so I gave up. I must admit to not actually wearing it out when this photo was taken, I just couldn’t wait any longer to show it to you all. I have absolutely NOWHERE to wear this voluminous number to so you can expect to see me sashaying along the cereal isle and strutting down the frozen veg lane in Asda. Do I care? Nope. Maybe you can take a better photo for me when you see me.
I had a little extra fabric and so I’ve made three girls’ skirts (6-12 month, 12- 18 months, 3-4 years) which are listed in my Etsy shop.
I have enough fabric for one more adult skirt so if you would like to make one for you- any size- head to the shop and convo me!
*****23/01/2016- I can now get more of this fabric so will be featuring more skirts in the shop- YAY!*****
YAY! *clapping hands wildly like a baby seal*
