Last weekend I managed to do some sewing and I made two pleated skirts inspired by Emmerson Made's pocket skirt. I did end up making a mustard yellow one as well but it's not quite finished.
I wish I had more time to sew and the piles of fabric that I want to turn into something are growing and growing. Now that I have my sewing corner set up I have the luxury of leaving everything and not having to tidy up after every time I sit down to do a little work on a project.
Do you sew at all? I hope to share a few more projects on here but fear not, Living In won't turn into a sewing blog, I have far too many other interests and things to share ;-)
I've been looking for a locket pendant for some time and was so pleased to find this perfectly round one through Bon'A Parte. I really love it but will have to eventually replace the chain as it's really thin and I worry it might break if the boys get hold of it.
My final purchase to share are some fun wooden clogs. I still remember as a little girl I used to wear my grandmother's clogs in her garden. They were way too big but I loved the sound of them on the garden path. I chose ones with a Missoni inspired pattern made by danish company Sanita (also available through Amazon). I think they are quite nostalgic with a modern twist.
