#SewMyStyle2018 Estelle

Hi there! Hope everything's good with you? Today I want to share my make for this month's Sew My Style challenge. There were actually two patterns to pick from this month: the By Hand London Rumana coat and the Style Arc Estelle. The Rumana is a thing of beauty, the perfect classic tailored coat. Obviously...

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...

Subtle sleepwear

Hi there! Today is reveal day for month one of the #sewmystyle2018 challenge and I have indeed managed to make the stated garment this month. I need to apologise for not having many photos; this is purely because I intended to take them today and then have spent nearly all day in bed with a... Continue Reading →

A dazzle of Zebres!

Hi there! I've been doing a little research for today's post to discover the name for a group of zebras; did you know it was a dazzle? What an appropriate name for a collection of me mades! My latest post for Minerva Crafts is about my second version of the I Am Patterns Zebre top. ... Continue Reading →

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 →
