Something haunts my dreams

(Leather Cut-out top: Vintage, Gingham Skirt: DIY, Barbie Shoes: Topshop, Stone necklace: Forever21, Purse: Mulberry)

Gingham, gingham haunts my dreams. I love gingham, so yay, it's having a come back. I actually have a lighter blue gingham skirt I bought from Topshop, but due to their bad quality, length and sizing I felt a need to replace my bobbled, skelt-lengthed, gappy-waist skirt. How to remain placid and not agitated by the Highstreet's idea of a suitable length (money saving initiative- less fabric= less cost) I went to Hobby craft and left with some fabric. An Afternoon later I had a skirt that fits my out of proportion waist AND covers my butt. Everyone is a winner. I used this tutorial if anyone wants to get crafty!

Lots of love,

Emma x

    1. I love me a project! I feel like human not sewing stuff. I used sewing as a break from University/ while watching the TV. I'm not a good role model though!

  3. Blue gingham really is something I look forward to wear more often. It's so picnickish (does this word exist?)!
    You look beautiful!

    1. If my entire wardrobe was picnickish I would be a happy lady!! (It is also so a word!)

  4. Wow, that skirt turned out just lovely! I have the same problem with waist/behind proportions - maybe I should go your route and try making my own skirts!

    1. See, I know I am not the only girl that suffers this issue so why don't they do something? Le sigh.

    1. It is a pretty shoddy skirt. However, for a first attempt, it's decent.
      Stop flirting with me. Not don't, I like it.

  9. I love that skirt! You are so clever, I could never make one- I'd probably just end up sewing my fingers together...

    1. I have a legitimate fear of that, my neighbor when I was a kid did that. Freaky!

  12. Wow, you're so clever to make that amazing dress yourself!! it's so nice... You suit gingham so much, don't fight the pull of looking a bit like Dorothy (in the best possible way). Your shoes are amazing, almost as amazing as the gorgeous scenery as usual!
    Have a good week <3

    1. Well at least you said Dorothy rather than the scarecrow. That would have been mean!

  14. This is definitely such a great skirt, I simply love it (need to get a similar one myself)! Amazing look my dear :)

  15. You look so gorgeous in gingham! It's amazing that you made it, I would never have guessed. Your shoes are really pretty and you look beautiful! I love the countryside background :) xx

  16. Can't believe you made this skirt yourself, I'm useless at things like that! Great job, it looks lovely :) xx

  17. You're so clever, I love your skirt and the fact you made it yourself makes it so much more special. I agree with you though, the high street's idea of a suitable length leaves a lot to be desired (by leery old men ha). I don't think I could make the skirt - the instructions sound straight forward enough but I'm no good with a sewing machine and I couldn't tell you what a zigzag stitch is! Can't leave this post without mentioning how amazing your top and shoes are either - the whole look is perfect and everything fits together so well xxx

    1. Ahaha, yes, creepy men love it! Maybe creepy men are the heads of high street stores? Ha, I just practiced, I had to restitch some of it. This top was such a score, £10 well spent.
