Blog Inspiration

I'm a big fan of urban outfitters, so it came as a surprise to me to find they have a blog ('what, really, I mean who doesn't have a blog these days!!') I guess I just ignored it, but no more readers, no more! It's an eclectic mix, from advertising discount days, kitten cam and decorating a Christmas tree in under 3 minutes whilst blind folded, to interviews, music and style. 


How yummy does this look? It's wonderful how novelty shapes can make your food that much more exciting. This is actually an image for a hangover guide, quite appropraite given the time of year.


Hand made Screen print christmas cards. made by an employee of urban outfitters, these are adorable, proper old skool as some might say, pure black and white prints all hand designed. kool won't you agree, (doesn't the word 'cool' seem so much cooler spelt with a K, or is that just me?)




Love, love, love these. I'm no stranger to painting my nails, and having the odd go at 'nail art' but these are something else, what's more fabb, is that the designer behind these Emma Zentner will have a pop-up nail hut in westfields white city this week. I so wish I lived in london. I would certainly be treating myself to one of her designs.

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.
Prep:
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…
