So where do I begin? I’ll begin by saying that although I’ve badly neglected my blog for the last 7 months, I haven’t neglected my sewing. So here I go with the start of my catch up.
Back in June my Husband and I went on holiday to Florence, Italy. I will show you some holiday pics, there are some photos of me wearing my hand made clothes so it is relevant.
I took lots and lots of photos throughout our trip but I won’t post them all by any means. Most of my pics don’t do the scenery any justice at all so its not worth it really. My Husbands are probably better but I haven’t seen them yet!
First up is me wearing one of the jersey dresses that I made specially for this holiday. You might remember the post I made about them and what I did with the sleeves/shoulders. Well I took the extra fabric off the shoulders and went back to how they were. Decided I preferred them that way. I’m so fickle sometimes I do my head in!
Its not the most flattering shot of me, but it will have to do. I took three of these dresses. Two in khaki and one in grey. I wore both the khaki ones but didn’t get round to wearing the grey one. Have to say they were very comfortable in the sometimes unbearable heat.
Next up grey jersey T-shirt
Loved this. Thats actually all for the clothing shots, now for some of Florence and Venice. I took quite a lot of my own sewn clothes and think I wore something I made at least 7 days of the ten.
We took a day trip to Venice on our last day. And OMG, what a truly beautiful, magical place. I loved it. I don’t just mean loved it. I mean L.O.V.E.D it! I didn’t want to leave and badly want to go back. I didn’t even mind all the tourists/crowds that much. I somehow managed to block them out and just enjoy being there. If you’ve never been, but fancy going I strongly advise it, you won’t be disappointed. The pictures that follow really don’t do it justice and you can’t get the sense of what its really like, but trust me, there’s nowhere else like it!
I took 194 photos on this day, be thankful I’m only showing a handful.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my little travel post. Posts about sewing to follow.
