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 →

Me Made May Week 3

Hi there! A slightly late post this week (although there's a chance I may not have properly published last week's post until about 5 minutes ago....😳) but here's my round up of week 3 of Me Made May. This week has been really busy: work is full on, I've had meetings at school outside of... Continue Reading →

Aloha Hawaii!

Hi there! Today sees the publication of my latest Minerva Crafts Blogger Network post and I am unutterably thrilled with this one! I chose to get some of this incredible Art Gallery Fabrics rayon; it was the print that sold me (shocking, right?) but when it arrived, oh, the feel of that fabric!!! Picture me...

Golden Givre

Hi there! How's your December going? Are you feeling festive, brimming with mulled wine and mince pies? Or do you, perchance, have primary school age children and are therefore drowning under the requirement to send party food, nativity costumes, cards, gifts, christmas jumpers and god only knows what else for each child on different days?...

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 →

Goji has to go

Today's make is a first for me. It had to happen sometime and this, it seems, is it; it's a Deer and Doe pattern that I don't love. I don't even like it very much. I should. I like the line drawings. I like the topstitching details. I like the big patch pockets and the... 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 →

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 →
