A while back, I mentioned the secondhand fabric collection that my friend Lauren had kindly sent me. After sewing a Burda Tie Front Blouse from the Swiss voile, I was eager to move onto this beautiful retro print fabric. And what better match for a brown bold floral than wide leg pants?
Unlike some sewists, my sewing output isn’t that great to warrant multiple garments per post. So you know when I do have a few creations together, they are super-simple makes. These two fit that description: easy-to-sew wardrobe staples made entirely from scraps. They were sewn way back in March (or earlier), and only photographed recently!
In case you think I only read serious non-fiction, here are some entirely frivolous books I’ve read recently. Making Faces and Face Forward are instructional makeup books by the now deceased, internationally renowned makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin.
Looking back at my photos, I realised that I bought some compression socks (and made a quick post on Instagram about them) many months ago, but they never made it to the blog. I’ve already written a fairly lengthy post on compression stockings, with reviews of everything from sports compression tights (2XUs, Skins etc) to Juzo compression stockings to cheap beige maternity stockings, so if you want to know the basics of compression garments for the treatment of POTS, head over there first.
