Working it!

I'm afraid that this post is not as glamorous as it may sound! 

I work from home and rely on multi-tasking to the 9th degree in my everyday activities. I move from sitting at a desk to kneeling by my makeshift tripod to standing and ironing and sitting cross legged to work on our low tables. Wearing comfortable, loose, breathable clothing has become my essential uniform.

Unfortunately, I am unable to find such clothing easily and inexpensively in London and so I have decided to make my own!

I used the Dress Shirt pattern from \\Merchant &  Mills\\ and some white medium weight organic cotton. The finished article has a lovely weight and feel to it and allows plenty of room and flexibility for my hectic movements!

I am happy with my 1st attempt, at a dress and everything is far more even in reality than in the photo! I promise! 

I am sure that I shall be making more for myself in the near future. I hope you won't mind me showing you what I come up with!


  1. I love this. I would love to make my own clothes (or have someone do it for me) - I am super picky about comfort of fit and materials.

  2. very cool indeed, i honest long for baggy but classy clothes to wear at home. i'm not mad keen on staying in pjs but they jeans seem too ott so a medium would be this

  3. great for your first try!!! i am looking forward to seeing what else you come up w in the future :D hopefully will see some in your shop!

  4. I love the fact that you made this. I haven't been near a sewing machine in the longest time.

  5. What a great idea. I am looking forward to seeing how you progress down this road. Xxxx

  6. Please tell me that you shall be making them for the Fushigi shop as well! Who needs to invest in Celine when we could have of of your hand-made dresses?!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note, they are the stuff that keeps us going.
