I just couldn’t help myself.
I got this LOVELY (and dirt cheap) striped stretch cotton blend off Ebay – definitely a winner. It’s really light an airy and drapes really well. The Moneta pattern was a joy to work with the first time, and even more so the second time. I made this dress in one evening, fiddly pattern matching and everything. I decided on short sleeves, inspired by the amazing heat wave we’ve had in London recently. Again no collar – think I’m drawn to simple styles.
I have a strong feeling that this dress will be my go to summer dress. It’s incredibly comfortable, and pretty flattering too.
These photo’s were taken outside Canterbury Cathedral. I have my dad and step mum visiting and me and the boy decided to show them something outside of London for once. Unfortunately we didn’t time things very well and so didn’t actually get to see the inside of it. Which is really annoying when you’re in Canterbury.
We did however go on a lovely boat tour on the canal – it came with a posh history graduate tour guide and everything. I can really recommend it.
