#TNT Jumpers for the win!

Hi there! I thought I'd sneak in another little TNT post for the Sewcialists TNT month.  I've been doing a lot of sewing of late but, because I'm very short on time at the moment but still want new winter things, it's all been about the tried and tested patterns, which is less exciting to...

A Speckled Melilot

Hi there! So, like I said, I have actually been sewing lots, it's simply been a case of not having time to blog.  I'm forcing myself to stop for a night or two and write some posts to show some of the things I've been doing, and this is one that has been on the... Continue Reading →

#TNT: The Agnes top

Hi there! So yes, I am having a little bit of a blog post catch up session; I've not blogged for weeks but that is partly because a lot of what I've been making has been repeats to fill out my autumn wardrobe a little.  However, this month on the Sewcialists website is all about...

A lazy Datura!

Hi there! Today's holiday blog will be shorter and sweeter than usual, purely because this is now my 5th version of this top! Yes, it's the Datura again! But I thought it was worth mentioning as I did make a few change to this one that make it, in my opinion, even more perfect as... Continue Reading →

Datura ftw 

This is the point at which we move from virtual blog silence to holiday sewing overload. Apologies in advance to those who like their blog updates in a regular, evenly spaced stream: I'm afraid I just don't work like that! Today's update from sunny (33 degrees) Cyprus is, after all, the perfect summer top.  You... Continue Reading →

Trevi top

I don't know about you, but it seems that every year now, I hit a stage of panic sewing around a month before my holidays.  It always, always creeps up on me, together with the realisation that I cannot possibly complete my mental holiday wardrobe anything like in time. This week so far, in a... Continue Reading →

The faux dress

Morning everyone! Today sees the publication of my latest Minerva Blogger Network post.  I got some glorious magnolia print rayon from them with plans to make the Fumeterre skirt by Deer and Doe. This was partly because I'm a huge D&D fan girl (not dungeons and dragons, obvs!) and partly because I've seen loads of... Continue Reading →

The quest for the perfect summer top

Hi there! Hope you're finally enjoying some sun again where you are? It's been a wretched week here but the sun is finally peeping out again and I'm hoping it holds for the school sports day tomorrow! Have you come across the Petite Passions blog and this year's wardrobe builder challenge? I have honestly been... Continue Reading →

Happy Hoya

Hi there! Well, it's been rather busy around here of late, hasn't it? I seem to suddenly be blogging several times a week; I can't promise it'll continue and if you're getting update emails, I hope they aren't clogging up your inboxes! Sorry though, but I can't wait to share my latest make with you.... Continue Reading →
