Hello Sailor!

I haven't posted many outfits lately - mostly because I'm housebound and studying for exams! But today I have one (eek), so here's a quick photo of what I'm wearing there:

Shorts: Handmade
Top: Valleygirl
Wedges: Target

I've wanted a pair of sailor shorts for ages, but these ended up costing me next to nothing (hooray) as I made them using the leftover fabric from my high-waisted pants - how lucky that I had just enough! The buttons I used are with with red outlines, aren't they just darling?

Oooh, better head off - wish me luck!

So cute! What pattern did you use for the shorts?

very nice! Hey - you just commented on my blog - I see you're in Melbourne. I'm moving down there in January, to St Kilda...any good vintage hangouts/places/stores/events that you reccomend?

Stefanie Valentine: Thank you! They make me feel like my legs are a mile long - hooray for optical illusions!

Serendipity Handmade: They're made from a modified version of Simplicity 3756 - I used the back piece from the shorts, and the front piece of the capri pattern (shortened to match - that step was mostly because I didn't have enough fabric left to make the pocket version!). I also cuffed the shorts, which the pattern did not indicate to do.

Gatsby and Me: Hello! I did notice you were moving to Melbourne, but didn't want to appear too creepy and stalkerish about living in the same place when I was only a new visitor to your blog ^^ ;;
Well, St Kilda is a lovely area, but I tend to visit at night for concerts, when all the shops are closed! I have heard there are a good many vintage stores in there, but I live in the eastern suburbs so the places I know are pretty far away from your new haunt. We have also got a few swing dancing clubs, and some themed bars that you might like: Madame Brussels is a must to visit, where you can get jugs of Sidecars to share (delicious!) and there's also the Tiki Bar, which I plan to check out for celebratory post-exam drinks! It's hard to give a definitive list - Melbourne has so many nooks and crannies and well hidden secrets; but I do hope you'll love it here! Have fun exploring!
