Last year I made myself a ball dress for Bath Ball, this year I decided to make myself a top which went over this dress to make it another outfit.  Initially I made a top out of a burda style magazine but it really didn’t fit and I don’t have any photos of it.  My mother came to my rescue… Read more »

The other day when writing the post for Sunday Sevens I realised that there are many of our dance dresses that we have not blogged about.

Every season I keep planning my new seasons sewing. I don’t often get round to sewing what I have dreamed about sewing, but this year I have been trying to stream line my wardrobe and make it more inline with a “capsule wardrobe”.

So although I have done some knitting before, I’ve never really done any crochet. When we were in Scandinavia on holiday recently Pippa was crocheting (as we thought crochet hooks were better to take through security than knitting needles) and I thought it would be nice to try something.
