Some new things...

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.


Tschüss...

Wow, toller Rock und die Clogs gefallen mir auch richtig gut. Ich habe Ende letzten Jahres angefangen zu nähen, aber leider zu wenig Zeit und Muße, so dass ich irgendwie in den Anfängen stecken geblieben bin. So einen Rock hinzukriegen scheint für mich noch unerreichbar. Aber 'ne Kosmetiktasche und Nähmaschinenhülle habe ich bereits hinbekommen, Juchuu... LG Tesca

Hi Lisa, thanks for your comment. I actually made the skirt pattern myself. Check out this lovely ladies blog: she's made a similar skirt and even included a tutorial. http://elleapparel.blogspot.com/2011/03/guilded-skirt.html. Have fun!
