First day of work OOTD and my homemade dress

Tuesday was my first day of work as a proper psychologist! Here's what I wore

1. My homemade dress:

I made this the day before I started with charcol dogtooth material from a shop in the North Laines, Brighton and this pattern from Burda Style. I wouldn't recommend this pattern - I had such a problem with it! Firstly, you had to pay for it, and then it didn't have any seam allowances! (I had to draw them on myself) and it was far to big!)

I was really chuffed with it in the end though, as I managed to line up the pattern over the seams

So this is the outfit I wore on my first day

Cardigan - £18 Marks and Spencer

Watch  - vintage from my Nan. Typically I put on my Swatch in the morning and it had run out of battery overnight!

And importantly... the shoes!

These are £20 from New Look. I love a wedge!

Hope you liked my choice
