The sun is shining – it really is, and it is a bank holiday weekend! That can only mean one thing…BBQ and skater dresses. Ok. So that is two things, but either way – that’s just perfect!

Skater dresses are one of the prettiest early summer dresses around. I particularly love this Nishe Pinapple Print Skater Dress, £60, ASOS – I mean the super simple lines of this dress make for the perfect blank canvas for having some big time fun with fancy prints. So, Check out today’s moodboard with Style Sunday: The Skater Dress!

All I want to do now is stitch dresses…but, with a long list of other sewing commissions to work on (with deadlines looming!) I’ll be sat at the sewing machine for most of the day working on different makes. It’s not dressmaking, but it stitching on a lovely lazy Sunday – so, I’ll take it!
