Friday Fancies

Yay! It’s Friday.

To celebrate I’d like to share some of my “fancies” for this week. In no particular order, here are some things I’m currently loving.

I’d love to make some of these to hang my handmade dresses on. They'd make cute gifts too.

  • This tutorial from Casey at Elegant Musings on how to add hip pockets to a skirt. I’ll be using a plainer version of this for my denim Simplicity 2263 tulip skirt.

  • Lace skirts, like this one from La Redoute.

I think it looks gorgeous with the black peplum top. Both items seem as if they would be quite simple to make. If only I could find some lovely lace fabric that doesn’t break the bank...

  • Crumpets, particularly home made ones using this recipe from The Hairy Bikers. (Actually I love the look of pretty much everything The Hairy Bikers cook!).  You wouldn’t normally associate crumpets with July, but with the weather we’ve been having recently, I might just have to make some of these this weekend!

  • Cats reading newspapers.


I know I said in no particular order, but that cat might well be my favourite this week!

Have a lovely weekend!
