Back Again

Shoes: Poetic Licence

Hello, stranger!

After a brief hiatus (including going away for sales conference) I’m back on board at Frocks and Frou Frou.

May(de) was exciting, and surprisingly hard work! From choosing an outfit in the morning, trying to get home in time to photograph it with at least a leetle natural light, then blogging as well, phew!

I wanted to give a shout out to a few bloggers who came along for the May(de) ride: posting outfits they’d made or remixed themselves, including Suzy from Suzy Bee Sews, who made a cute Parfait blouse from my favourite dress pattern company Colette, and Tempest from Ellomennopee who remixed a couple of super cute dresses (including a really clever idea for turning a round neck into a ruched v-neck)

Also, it’s not officially a May(de) project, but Donna’s rescued/remixed “Donut Dress DIY” has got me on the hunt for a cute vintage doily that I can use to pretty up a plain top.

  1. Awwww thanks for the shout out!

    I must say I loved your Mayde posts and have been missing you since May has been and gone!

    Doilys are the best for DIYs…. I’m loving them so much on everything from my dress to our wedding decorations!

      1. Could you not wear it with armies? I bought a thin whilte pair of armies from ebay a couple of winters ago & wear them under 3/4 length sleeve tops & cardigans & it works 🙂

    1. Thanks for the link to suzy bee – loved looking through the blog, and both of you have inspired me to try sewing again (small steps though!).

        1. Starting with the simplest possible pencil skirt in a cobalt blue ponte knit (the knit is the challenge for me, I’ve not sewn any clothes since I was at school). Virtu have something similar in store selling for $70, if mine works out it will cost under $20.

          Long term, I’d like to manage some pants – am so tired of store bought pants fitting only in some areas (if the thighs fit, the waist doesn’t, if the waist fits, the crotch is too long). Oh, and am completely in love with wrap tops and dresses, but will build up to that too.

          1. Great work! I’ve actually never attempted trousers, but wouldn’t it be GREAT to just be able to make clothes that fit PERFECTLY right from the get-go? Amazing!
