Bendigo Cup

Erin was invited to join the Bendigo Bank team at the Bendigo Cup. As a mid week country race day the style is more casual than the bigger spring carnival events.

The fabric was purchased years ago at Spotlight and awaited the perfection occasion. The design was a combination of Vogue 9075 for the culottes pants adapted to use Simplicity 4070 for the bodice. We added pleated straps to the bodice for an element of detail across the chest to balance the hat for the day time Bendigo Cup event.

Pattern: Vogue 9075 and Simplicity 4070
Fabric: Spotlight Store
Hat: Lauren J Ritchie
Shoes: Wittner Shoes
Bag: Olga Berg from Myer
Earrings: Northside Southside

A fabulous outfit that lead into a week of new outftis.  The week started with Derby Day the first day of The Melbourne Cup Spring Racing Carnival. 

Royal Ascot 2018

The outfit for Royal Ascot all start with the shoes!  Irregular Choice shoes to be exact, and aren’t they amazing!?   

The dress was made from McCall’s 7279 with a circle skirt added for a softer line to match the delicate lavender lace sourced from Spotlight in Melbourne. Construction involved tacking the lace to the matching poplin backing before stitching the darts of the bodice.

  The details of the make included black piping around the cream Peterpan collar and turned up cuffs

The finished look for Royal Ascot was paired with a black Review belt to highlight the piping and worn with a Lauren J Ritchie Lenox Boater.
