Vogue Chambray jumpsuit

My Minerva Make for this month is live on the Minerva Crafts website now. (Full disclosure; the fabric for this make was provided in return for my honest review and photos. All other supplies and opinions are my own.) Every me made deserves a good label This make has been floating around in my head... Continue Reading →

Hanging out with the sloths

Today sees the publication of my latest Minerva Crafts Blogger Network make. This make is a really simple one, but one I can see getting some real wear in my wardrobe. There isn't a huge amount to say here that isn't in my Minerva post, but I continue to be amazed by how many of... Continue Reading →

Fighting the chill in style

There are some makes that you throw yourself at with gay abandon. The quick wins, the easy fabrics; I'm looking at you, vast collection of me made sweatshirts. Then there are the ones that you mull over for some time. The ones where you carefully research and gather supplies.  The ones where you google techniques... Continue Reading →

Llovely Llamas

Today my latest blog post for Minerva Crafts goes live.  I chose to make up an old favourite, the Grainline Linden sweatshirt. And, quite unusually, I messed up!

You can read all about the dress itself on the Minerva Crafts site now.  But I... Continue Reading →

Landers great and small

So I'm back from my holidays and feeling very relieved to have got home to some more sensible temperatures, after nearly dying of heat exhaustion in Italy.  I jest of course, but genuinely, I am not designed for daily temperatures over 35 degrees combined with high humidity! Anyway, I have some blog catching... Continue Reading →

Dungarees for Minerva

Hi there! So this post was actually written quite a while ago, but was written for Minerva so the date of publishing was down to them. There's been a continuing theme around here for some time of learning to properly fit trousers to my obviously slightly unusual shape.  This make was one I think of... Continue Reading →

Feathered Trevi

Hi there! It's time to share my latest Minerva Crafts Blogger Network post with you.  This one is a little special because I had the photos taken at the Stitch Room Sewcial. It was rather strange having professional photos taken of a make, especially since I normally just take my own shots with a tripod... Continue Reading →
