Secret pyjamas again!

Hi there! So this is an unusually speedy blog post for me, but given the interest online about the subject matter, I thought I'd get myself organised for once! Today's post is about my second project from Tilly's new book. My first, a wearable toile of the Frankie top, wasn't perfect (repeat after me, do... Continue Reading →

Looking back at January

Hi there! I thought it might be interesting to start doing a monthly round up post on the blog.  There are two main reasons for this; firstly, I'm getting to the point where I don't blog absolutely everything I make.  This has been the case for a while now, but I find I'd quite like...

Cosy and sparkly!

Hi there! My blog post today is a very exciting one; I was asked to be one of the pattern reviewers for the brand new pattern company, My Handmade Wardrobe Patterns.

Unicorns everywhere….

Hi there! Hope all's well in your bit of the world? Today's post is a pretty quick one; I probably wouldn't even bother sharing this now except for the very lovely fabric involved!

You know those days where you need to look... Continue Reading →

Success despite myself!

Morning! Hope you're enjoying this unseasonable warm weather; I've just got back from dragging myself and the girls to Junior Parkrun so am obviously tucking in to a cafe latte and a chocolate chip cookie bigger than my head..... Since finishing my coat, I've felt the need for a few quick and easy makes to... Continue Reading →

True Bias Southport(s)

Hi there! So this is a slightly delayed summer makes blog post, but I was lucky enough to receive some viscose from Minerva Crafts to review and I've been waiting for them to publish so I could share my makes. The product review, which features three of the dresses I made, is here. So why... Continue Reading →
