Belt: Same pink M&S guy (it gets a lot of wear)
Shoes: Ted Baker
Oh and I know that little corner pic is hella blurry, but I love my hair in it so I put it in.
Totally unrelated, but keeping with my DIY theme for OWOP, today’s post is about a recent make I worked on with my best gal Lynsay.
I get a lot of exciting texts from Lynsay. Often they are Prince-based. One time we just spent twenty minutes texting JANET! BRAD! JANET? DR SCOTT! ROCKY! at each other. But the most exciting text she’s sent me was about what shall henceforth be known as the Bag of Wonder. I’m paraphrasing, but it was something along the lines of, ‘My designer friend is moving abroad and wants to give me a bag of remnants of her fabric. Do you think we could do something with that?’
Oh friends. You can guess what my response was. It had many exclamation marks.
The Bag of Wonder now resides in my sewing room, constantly tempting me with scraps of gorgeous tartan, heavy-weight denim, totally random stretchy purple cuffing and so much more.
We’ve started to make what I hope will be a cute dress for Lynsay, but to kick us off (and because a lot of the remnants are the perfect size for this) we started by each making a cute lil’ fascinator.
I don’t know what tartan this is, but I love it. It’s got a gorgeous mix of red and sky blue, plus some green in there. I have a red winter cape, which I hope it will look smashing with.
Lynsay has done an awesome step-by-step rundown on her blog Miss West End Girl which you can follow. So, I won’t go into too much detail, but here’s a few pics to show my own hat-making process.
And here’s how it looks atop my head!
So, are you fascinated by fascinators? More OWOP-ing tomorrow…
