Been working on a new project on my day off and it’s starting to look like shoes! It’ll be a while til I have a finished pair though because progress is particularly slow at the moment due to a bit of a CFS crash ๐Ÿ˜” [Image description.

My latest make is a zero waste dress made with beautiful black viscose twill from @thesewistfabricshop You can read all about it and a few of my thoughts on sustainability and setting on their blog. I really love the house dress vibe at the moment, it is super comfortable but feels like a step up from jogging bottoms! Thanks so much @hanthesewist for having me on your blogging team ๐Ÿ˜ AD. Fabric given to me in exchange for a blog post [Image description.
