Fishnet Crop Top

I'm off on holiday this Thursday so I won't be posting for a few weeks but I'm really excited to show you some of the things that I've made when I come back. In the meantime, I wanted to show you this fishnet crop top which I adjusted from a long sleeved one I had previously (very simply by cutting off the sleeves and cropping it). In an ideal situation I wouldn't have paired it with this skirt but unfortunately I have a lack of summer skirts at the moment and it was the best I could find! If you've been following my blog for a while, you may recognise it from a post last summer. I hope you are all having a good summer, and see you in 3 weeks!

Miss Selfridge Summer Wishlist

Although I got back from holiday last week, I've somehow only just got around to writing another blog post (albeit a very short one). I went with 8 of my friends to Kos at the start of July to celebrate the end of A levels (...it was such a fun holiday and I'm very sad to be back home and not really doing much, but I'm off again in a week so it's not too bad!). I've made quite a few things recently but I figured I'd take photos on holiday rather than in my garden....which is why I don't really have any outfits to show at the moment. Instead, I just picked out some of my favourite things from Miss Selfridge, including a couple of the amazing dresses they have....

Leavers Party Part 2

The big news of today is that I passed my driving test (it's such a relief to have finished it)! I'm also going on holiday with some friends to Kos tomorrow, so I won't be blogging for the next week and a bit. 
Here is my second post about the leavers party... I made the dress by layering this amazing sheer blue fabric over a black lining underneath (as I wanted it to match my Office heels). As with anything I make, there are a couple things I'd have liked to have improved but generally it's one of my favourites and it's something I might actually be able to wear again as it's not too formal. Let me know what you think...
