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!
