My New Project - Miss Molly Boutique

I've been speaking about it for a few months and it's now starting to become a reality. I've got plenty more to upload so do check back again soon but I just can't wait any longer to show you all! 

Would love to know your thoughts.

Each year my love for floral fabrics grow. The last few evenings after work I have come straight home and bought out the sewing machine to start making some summer skirts and shorts for my store (future store currently).  I've been working with heaps of floral fabric. I wanted to share with you some of my favourites and inspiration. I seriously can't get floral prints out of my mind! 

Tell me you feel the same as I do!

Time For Changes

Are any of you still out there? I have been so slack with my blog this year. I get hardly any time because I work full time and travel 1.5 hours to work and then the same 1.5 home every day. I have decided to move to Brisbane in the next few weeks so I can have a life during the week! I can't believe how long it has taken me to decide. I have been travelling for nearly a year and a half.

Another reason why I want to move is so I have more time pursue my a new little project/goal I have. I want to start a market stall/online store and sell clothes that I make. I will be starting VERY small as I'm pretty slow right now and want my creations to be good quality. 

So anyway.. I just wanted to say hey to everyone that is still blogging and share some of my inspiration that I've found lately for Spring and a few personal pictures.

OOTN - Dinner and Drinks

Hey everyone.. :)

My boyfriend and I went out for Teppanyaki and some drinks at the casino on Satuday night. We haven't been out for many drinks lately so it was fun and I just love to dress up and go out anywhere! It's getting cold here though at night which is making it hard. 

I made the skirt a few months ago and I've also made a dress out of the same fabric which I will have to show you. 

The cropped turtle neck top isn't actually cropped I just folded it up. I do this with so many of my tops at the moment. I definately am obsessed with different cropped top looks at the moment. Out of all my Pinterest boards, everyone seems to follow that one as well! This turtle neck was just a cheap one but I think they can look really stylish. 

Hope you like it x x x

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!
