New Sewing: Leopard Print and Procrastination Are My Weaknesses



"My weakness is wearing too much leopard print."
- Jackie Collins

So on Sunday I was hit with the sudden urge to sew something. Partially because I couldn't afford a jumper I wanted, and partially because I didn't want to study for exams. So I made this leopard print jumper thing out of some fabric my Aunt had given me last year to fulfill both my roll-neck jumper and procrastination needs. 

 top - made by me
wet look leggings - glassons
cut out boots - boohoo.com
nails - Rimmel Salon Pro Kate Moss in 'Hip Hop'
lips - Rimmel Kate Moss in '107'
flower ring - Karen Walker
necklace - antique sovereign case

It came together pretty well and was just a simple long-sleeve shirt pattern made looser with a tube attached to the neck (I didn't even finish the edges; sorry Mum!). But for now I must forget about sewing, and anything non-uni, for only a few more days until exams are over!!
