How I Style Crop Tops

Top: Bardot
Shorts: Made these myself
Necklace: Myer ($3.00!) 
Shoes: Who's Lucy 

Shorts: Zara - These were on sale for $35 but they only had size 10. I bought them anyway and made them into my size. I absolutely love them. Having a sewing machine is such a good investment I tell you!  

 Jeans: Top Shop sale for $38. Can't wait to wear them more as it gets cooler. 
Top: Forever new - On sale for $12 I think and once again was a size 10. Easily altered to my size. 

 Top: Forever New
Skirt: Made this myself. I absolutely love this fabric.

I can't stop buying cropped tops at the moment. I'm building up quite the collection. I think they're beautiful. My photos don't do them justice. I am so awful at taking photos for my blog. I use a good quality camera but have no idea how to use it! It's so frustrating!! 

I haven't made a post for SUCH a long time! I have been working hard recently and have to travel quite far to and from work every day. I don't get much time to do my creative things other than on the weekends which I have lately been using to sleep and socialise! I have started to get back into my sewing again. I have lots of ideas and would love to start up a little store of my own. However, I desperately need to learn how to make clothes in proper standard sizes not just to fit my self. 

I am looking into taking a pattern making class soon which will be exciting. It's just all about finding times to suit my work schedule. Rrr work gets in the way of everything! 

Hope you're all well. If you want to see what I've been up to in this last year follow my instagram: Sophlife. I'd love to follow back!
