OK, it's a dodgy title: apologies! I couldn't resist though! Clearly, the make I want to share with you today is the Alexa jumpsuit by Tilly and the Buttons. I've had the pattern and fabric for this jumpsuit for quite some time (i.e. since it was released in May) but it didn't get to the... Continue Reading →
So how's your lockdown week been? Ours has been quite emotional as things have started to hit a little too close to home. I viewed last night's news of lockdown potentially starting to ease on Monday with some trepidation; it will be interesting to see what that easing actually looks like. I've continued to try...

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 →

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 →
#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... 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 →

Tilly-ed tip to toe!
Hello! How are things going in your world at the moment? Hope all's good. Today's post is one I've been wanting to write for a while, but one of the items is this month's Minerva Crafts Blogger Network make, so I've been waiting for that post to be published. However, as I've been wearing it... Continue Reading →
