PART TWO | London Adventures ft. My Me-made Outfit!
Time for part two of my little London adventures, if you missed my first post, check it out HERE! On our second day in London, me and my boyfriend headed to some trendy areas we'd not explored before. We started the day in Shoreditch, walking to Hoxton and Brick Lane then on to Spitalfields market. Here are some snaps I took along with way...

I was so disappointed to not find any stalls selling vintage sewing patterns. I loved the vintage buttons, but the prices were crazy! Whilst I had a good time browsing around, I didn't purchase anything and instead saved my money for Mexican food...

Eating Mexican food - my favourite hobby...
We ended up in DF/Mexico an amazing and vibrant Mexican restaurant and I'd happily spend the rest of my life eating nothing but this burrito over and over!

We ended the day in a very cold Regent's Park, where I managed to take some outfit snaps. Although I certainly haven't mastered the nonchalant posing for photos in public thing that fashion bloggers seem so good at. I'm all chins and flat hair here, but at least you can see my new Vogue 9123 coat!

This tweed coat is my February Minerva Craft Blogger Network make and will be up on the blog soon with more snaps and a full review. I styled my coat with my favourite Cleo dungaree dress, but this is my sassy button up pattern hack, which you can copy HERE

I hope you've enjoyed a peek at my London Adventures. I'd love to do more out and about posts, showing you how I style my me-made clothes. I'd love to check out the sewing Mecca that is Goldhawk road at some point (to see what all the fuss is about...), as well as exploring the fabric shops in my nearest city, Birmingham, 

Thanks for reading, pinups!

P.S. I'm on YouTube! I launched my channel The Crafty Pinup last month. Check out my Seamstress Tag video where I answer 12 sewing themed questions HERE!
