My birthday suit

I wrote a couple of weeks ago that I wanted to complete an ensemble to wear for my birthday dinner last night, and as promised here are the pictures taken in the hotel that we stayed at, and its also the same hotel we will be married in May. Check out that mirror that was in our bedroom , and the chairs in the hotel lounge, just love them.


I am wearing my McCalls 6441 jacket, blogged about here together with my silk BurdaStyle blouse blogged about here,  grey trousers, blogged about here, what you can't see is my bra blogged about here, self-made panties (not blogged about).  The only things I didn't make were my shoes, belt and bag :-)

We had a lovely evening, at our favourite restaurant, and for that I have thank my D-Mike.

I have cut out the pieces for my next picture which I have brought to work on in the flat, and I have also cut out a skirt from the same grey fabric as my trousers, but I really didn't have enough time to do any more than that this weekend, so that will have to wait a couple of weeks before I get a chance to do any more clothes sewing.

I hope you have had a good weekend.  It has turned very cold here in London, and cycling through the city on our bikes this evening proved rather chilly brrrrrrrrrr.  Snow is forecast, and I know some of you guys have already had the snow for quite a few weeks now, but I am really really not looking forward to it.

That's all from me, catch you later.................

    1. Ann, while I haven't entered any of the 6 PAC, I prefer mentally to think I need to add garments that will work with things I already have in my wardrobe. Thanks for the compliment.

  10. Happy Birthday to You!

    I saw the title of your blog come up on my blog roll and thought 'hmmmm, birthday suits hey?!' I ahve to say that your birthday suit is one of the best I have seen - and how cool is it that you made almost everything you are wearing. Will you be making your wedding dress?

  13. Wait, there is a no to rtw bra group? Maybe I should have joined six months ago, since that is how long I've already been wearing my own handmade lingerie exclusively.
