It has been lovely and hot all day, during the evening there was a nice breeze so I sewed for a while in the garden. This is a beach cover up I made from a sarong I bought for a fiver last year and never wore, I liked the fabric so decided the pattern would lend itself well to this revamp.
The gold edging for the neckline was 38p a metre from Fabricland and there was virtually no sewing other than giving it shoulders and cutting/edging the neckline itself as the sarong had a nice rolled edge on all sides. I might do again as it's a very easy and cheap make.
I was in Brighton yesterday and took a moment to snap some very pretty graffiti - every time I visit Trafalgar Road the graffiti has changed so this was a refreshing surprise.
I always visit the library if I have time as they have some very good art books to ponder and also some of the cleanest toilets in Brighton! ... then it was onwards for a spot of beach therapy. Just the sound of the sea gulls and the rolling waves charges my batteries. I was on a budget so my lunch was a vegetarian scotch egg, bottled water and a banana on the beach.
The charity shops around here are a bit pricey for me but I really appreciate the window displays, this one in particular gets really good vintage stuff and the staff love dressing the windows to perfection. I expect this black and white theme was all designer and definitely vintage. Dresses like this don't ever go out of fashion and we're made to last.
Tomorrow it's the gym and some garden sunbathing.... hope you're enjoying your weekend wherever you may be. Thanks for stopping by...
