A couple of days ago I posted a few inspiration images for the second in the DIY Little Black Dress series (see here). I fell in love with the black tasseled dresses at the Gucci SS11 show, and so this is my LBD inspired by those oh-so-glamourous styles. I went for a much more subtle style than the original inspiration as you can see.
1. I turned the sack dress inside out, and overlayed a bodycon dress to get the correct shape - then I pinned it where I wanted to take it in.

This is a relaxed wedding outfit for the Thai beach wedding I’m going to this weekend. I have been wanting a pair of bright coloured high waisted, wide leg pants for ages – so I re-used the fabric from this maxi skirt I made for the last wedding I went to and designed these pretty wide leg pants. Outfit pics to come.

I’m heading to Thailand for a week and thought I’d show you what I’m taking with me (hope you’re not sick of the ‘whats in my suitcase’ posts yet!). As you can see I tried to get together a few basics for my trip – and then added some key coloured items for a bit of pop. I’ve been designing a few samples for a side project I am working on and am looking forward to giving them a test run on my holiday. I’ll be throwing in a few pairs of bikinis too of course!
