Blogtoberfest 2012

Having been excited to participate in this last year, I recently received an invite off  Kat at I saw you dancing who is hosting it this year, so I've decided to do it all again!! Oddly after the euphoria of finishing it last year and stating I would do it again, I've been say to myself all year 'I'm not doing it' but well here we are!

So for those of you who don't know what Blogtoberfest is, I'll give you a quick run down. Every year in the month of October, Blogtoberfest is held, there are no real rules, just you have to Blog every day through out October! A bit of a challenge but it is do-able, as I proved last year, I did miss one day though :(  

You can blog about anything you want and even host give-aways. Intrigued? ... pop over to I saw you dancing and sign up!
Still not convinced? Don't worry if you don't blog every day, know-one is going to punish you for it , I promise. If your a wizz on the computer or you have time on your hands then you'll find it easy. If not scheduled posting will become your best-friend. you can even put up inspirational quotes or pictures if you don't want to write a full posts. So go on give it ago!! 

p.s I will also be using the hashtag on twitter #blogtobefest12 so you can follow me there too!

p.p.s let me know if your joining in and leave me the link for your blog, I'm always on the look out for new ones and it's one of the reasons that I am doing blogtoberfest again!


  1. So glad you're joining us again, Sarah. Fantastic effort in blogging [almost] every day!! You are living proof it can be done.

  2. Hmmm... I'd like to join in on this, although October is probably the worst month of the year for me to attempt such a thing. We'll see how it goes I guess!

    1. I've already hit a snag, I think I might be away for the last week of October. Oops :/

How To: Inserting a side seam zip with pocket

This skirt was meant to have a center back zip along with side seam pockets. Instead I put the two together and combined the zip into the side seam pocket and thought I would share with you how I did it or basically winged it ;)

What You should Know First:
This is easier than it looks all you need to do is be able to insert an invisible zip. The waist band was faced but I found it easier to attach the facing once the zip was in place.  This skirt also had lining but the lining fabric is treated as a single layer with the fashion fabric.
Prior to inserting the zip and pockets and treating the lining and fabric as one layer, I made sure both side seams were over-locked 
Construction Tips: These are by no means a definite way to do this, just the way I did it.  . 

1.  Pocket pieces should be kept separate, which makes it easier to place on the the skirt.

2. Taking the one pocket piece (Ignore that I have two in the pic) I lined it up on the right side of the skirt, with the correspondin…
