Hey Peeps! This has been a video that has been on my mind for a while. I love the McCalls instagram account who do this all the time….show you designer pieces that you can use one of their patterns to recreate the look. I thought I would have a look through one of my favourite websites, Net-A-Porter, to see what new in pieces I loved and pair them up with a readily available sewing pattern to make myself a bespoke designer dupe. Let me know what you think and if you have any websites that you love to look through for inspiration?

BTW …. I have no idea what happened to the framing of this video 😩😬
