The Saltmarsh Skirt

Here is another project from the Merchant and Mills Workbook (first one here). I may be slightly obsessed....

Called the Saltmarsh, this drawstring skirt pattern was just fun to sew, and I love the maxi length. It is just such a great versatile piece to add in any wardrobe.

Saltmarsh skirt worn with Topshop tank top and old Converse sneakers
The best part about this has pockets, you guys! Pockets! :D
Fabric used:100% polyester linen look
(Sorry for the weird lighting. These were taken in the afternoon before it started to rain.)

Do you have any addition to your wardrobe lately that you are really loving?

Not really

Most of the time, I put pictures like this....
old Hot Topic top and  LEI jeans, Blondo boots
And you think, "Isn't it November in Canada? They must be having nice weather over there." Guys, this picture is a lie! Being from a country with bitter winters, I just get sick & tired of seeing myself in jackets all the time . Hence, for the blog, I do this.

This is really what I'm usually wearing as soon as the weather gets cooler:

As bloggers, we have control over what we put out. I choose to blog mostly about superficial things in life and the happy moments, but obviously, life is not always honky-dory. It is not always great weather, happy get-togethers, hauls, favourite clothing items... but for now, I choose to have this blog as my happy corner in the universe:)

We are all French.

This is the state of the world we live in...where there is so much hate and division that killing innocent people is seen as a way to bring attention to a cause.

  I am praying for France and for the victims and their families of the Paris tragedy. I am praying for all the victims of terror attacks around the world.

 I am praying for peace and unity.

Currently Loving #26

What I've been loving lately....

1) I'm late into the Zumba craze, y'all! Just discovered this when my SIL gave me this DVD set, and I'm obsessed. I also now have a girl crush on Tanya Beardsley (who hasn't really taught Zumba for awhile, but she's awesome in the vids!).

 2) Scream series on Netflix
I'm a huge fan of the movies, and I think this series lives up to the movies's spirit.

3) Milani lipsticks and gloss
Have been using these a lot lately. Love the colours and consistency:)
Lipstick shades "Rose Femme" and "Matte Naked"; Gloss is "Bare Secret"

4) I saw this Vladimir Spencer sweater in the Nov 2015 issue of Nylon, and now I want to knit something like this.

5) This A-line dress is from the Alabama Chanin Sewing Patterns book. All the patterns are hand-sewn and looks quite challenging, but my goal is to make it...eventually....:D

Your turn...what have you been loving lately?

The Bantam Dress

This is what I sewed from the Merchant and Mills Workbook, which I had to order from Amazon UK coz it's not available here in North America until next year. (Why is that? Sigh....) So happy I did, because I love all the patterns from this book, you guys:)

The Bantam Vest is the first pattern, and I decided to make the dress version.
I sewed it with a cotton/linen blend fabric.

How I wore it:
The Bantam vest in the dress version is a very comfortable and easy-to-wear piece:)
I love the racer back, and the fact that the back hem is longer.

You'll be seeing these Blondo boots a lot...just saying....
To say that sewing has taken over my hobby life is an understatement....
Anyhoo, hope you're all having a lovely day so far:) XOXO
