The Little Blue Dress

Sunday, 16 August 2020



As much as I love talking about traveling, I think the current situation calls for a little bit of change. Besides, the endless scrolling through travel photos was giving me major travel blues, which is exactly what I don't want right now. So, instead of subjecting you to a sad post detailing how absolutely devestated I am about not being able to go abroad, I thought I'd do a bit of an oldie but goldie. As much as I moan about not being able to see my friends, or go out without wearing a mask (which I think everyone should be doing because It's so important!), I have to admit that there have been certain aspects of lockdown life that I've been loving. One of which includes the gift of time. While I used to constantly be rushing around, always worrying about everything that I had to get done, I now find that my schedule is much more open. I don't have to waste time driving places or waiting for people, I can do everything that I need to from the comfort of my own home. This has not only taught me just how much time I waste in normal day to day life, but also just how valuable my time is. At the end of the day, it's taught me that I should be splitting my work time and 'me' time more evenly. Additionally, I don't need to constantly be around people to truly enjoy what I'm doing! I genuinely believe that to truly be happy, you have to be comfortable being alone with yourself first. 

Anyway, enough with the cheesy. Long story short, because of lockdown I've found I have a lot more time to do the things I love, including getting back into designing and sewing. So I thought today I'd share one of my most recent creations, the Little Blue Dress. Well, actually it's more of a co-ord as it's made up of a top and skirt but, not going to lie, Little Blue Co-ord just doesn't have quite the same ring to it... This set consists on a skater style skirt (with a zip) and a plunge style bralette with a lace up back and crossover strap detailing. Originally this was supposed to have buttons on the back but at the last minute I decided the lace up design added a more unique quality to the overall set. 



Because I love this Co-ord so much, and have had a few requests from friends I've decided to sell it on my depop! I make all skirts according to exact size and length preferences, and can offer a number of different material patterns to choose from. If you're interested and don't have depop, you can also leave a comment below or DM me on twitter. I'm currently selling the skirts for 15£ including UK shipping.

  11. Wow that’s a gorgeous outfit! So impressive that you made that yourself! You’ve made such a good point as well, lockdown has been terrible but finding the silver linings such as more time, or for me spending more quality time with my 2 small children, means that we don’t need to see these months as time lost. But actually time to slow down and appreciate what we do have.

  15. Wow, I'm so impressed! You are a talented seamstress to be able to sew this beautiful dress. The top looks like it took a while to complete. It's great that you are using your time in lockdown so creatively. No wonder your friends are asking you to make them a dress, you look amazing in the little blue dress! I think it's fantastic that you can earn some extra money by sewing beautiful dresses, too.
