The Look: Handmade Co-Ords

It's always an amazing feeling to wear something that you've made yourself. I think that all the hours you put in and all the fun you had being creative and individual is somehow embedded into the seams.

This was the case with this set of co-ords I created: I put them on and I just couldn't stop smiling!

I've wanted to rock the co-ord trend for ages, but my pear shape figure (grrr!) made it hard to shop for some that would fit well. I guess this would be the case for anyone whose a different size on the bottom and top...

I always say: if you can't find the perfect item: just make it yourself! I picked up this fabric at Spotlight for $5 per metre and got to work with my puny needle and thread (I am sans sewing machine!)

I somehow managed to create this peplum crop top without making a template- it's all trial and error guys! The skirt took aaaages and I used a simple 2/3 circle skirt template.

And newsflash!!! (Sorry, got a bit excited) I finally got my Birkenstocks! The boyf thinks they belong on a granny, but what does he know about fashion, ey?
