Hier das Interview fuer euch.
Und hier gehts zum Gewinnspiel.


Sweet heart neckline, full circle skirt and florals.........

..........sounds like a good recipe for a dress to me.
I made this a while ago but didn't get a chance to photograph it before the wettest drought ever started over here in the UK. I know, I know I have moaned and moaned about it. Well, I am done moaning and ready to twirl for you.

It's a fitted bodice with a sweetheat neckline, straps and a full circle skirt.

Low cut back

Thank you, let me know what you think.


MMM round two day 9-10-11-12 including a new dress(actually2)!!!

As I mentioned in my previous post I didn't get a chance to wear any MMM outfits during the bank holiday weekend. My husband and I were covered in dust, dirt, paint and other DIY stuff. I was also very ill all week and weekend that I even forgot to wear my head scarfs. I just wanted to get on with our work and feel sorry for myself....

But this week was much better. I continued with the MMM challenge once I got back home and this is what I wore:

Wednesday: I wore my high waisted trousers and 1940s blitz blouse blogged here before.

Thursday I wore this dress. The picture is not from this week, I didn't take one but I found this one of me wearing it. I never posted it on the blog before although I have worn it a lot during the winter. Its a poly/linen blend I think. I shortened a set of curtains for some friends before Christmas and they let me keep the leftovers. I turned them into a little dress, added a lace collar and et voila..........

This is a shot of the collar detail. I also added a little button. I might do a post on the dress at some point.

On Friday I wore this dress, blogged here.

Saturday: The weather is sooooooo nice again today. I am soooooo happy!!!! After feeling ill and miserable the week before my half marathon race and even worse the week after, finally recovering last week, I really needed this. Perfect for another new dress. I will blog this one soon. Probably tomorrow. I think my excitement and change of mood shows in the pictures.

Tomorrow I'll be running another race. 10 miles this time. I haven't set a time goal though. I want to enjoy it, get sweaty and then eat loads of nice food afterwards as usual. Hopefully somewhere outside.
I hope it's gorgeous wherever you are. What are your planed this weekend?


Me Made May day 1, 2, 3

Here are my first 3 outfits as part of the Me Made May challenge.

Pink rose print shirt waist dress, first blogged here. I also made the head scarf. I'll be working on doing up a house in Nottingham through the long weekend and won't be able to wear any nice clothing. So I decided to make a few of these to still be true to my commitment wearing a me made piece every day ;-)
I wore the rose print dress with a purple cardigan, belt and wellies as I had to run some errands and it was chucking it down with rain....yet again.

1960s crepe dress with lace applique first blogged here

Strawberry print dress first blogged here

And now I am heading off north to get dirty and covered in paint. What are your plans? Have a great bank holiday weekend!!!
