You might have spotted that I stopped posting for Me Made May. I managed to post 21 days in a row on instagram, and I shared weeks 1 and 2 on the blog so I partially met the goals I had set for myself but if I were to be completely honest, week 3 of … Continue reading Me Made May – why I didn’t complete my challenge

My new Cali Fabrics post is now live!
My latest post on the Cali Fabrics blog went live a few days ago! I made another Granville Shirt from Sewaholic (third one and counting - any more is an addiction, right?) in a super cute micro gingham seersucker, and this one is comfy and I feel quite sassy in it! Check out my post … Continue reading My new Cali Fabrics post is now live!
Pattern testing – Cuba Libre shirt
As some of you may have seen from my instagram post last night, I was lucky enough to pattern test for the recently released Winter 2016 collection from Capital Chic Patterns! I was browsing twitter a few months ago and saw a shout-out for volunteers to test some patterns, so OF COURSE I volunteered and … Continue reading Pattern testing – Cuba Libre shirt
#bpsewvember Day 19, 20 and 21
Day 19: Neutral I don't/can't wear traditional neutrals because they make me look like I'm really unwell (pale for life yo) so instead I'm sharing this beautiful machine I saw in a shop window in Paris last month 😍 Day 20: Style stalk. I love a lot of what Taylor Swift wears and would happily … Continue reading #bpsewvember Day 19, 20 and 21
#sewphotohop Day 29: storage
#sewphotohop Day 29: storage. I have a lot of fabric which is stored in tubs in my sewing room but because there's so much I don't really know what I've got. I bought these trading card files so I can store swatches of my fabrics in a folder. That way I don't have to empty … Continue reading #sewphotohop Day 29: storage
A sleeveless Granville
Another day, another Granville shirt. This time – no sleeves! Of course, you probably clocked that from the title of the post... After the success of my first Sewaholic Granville shirt I knew this would become a staple pattern in my collection. I wear a lot of sleeveless shirts and tops which is why I … Continue reading A sleeveless Granville
V1467 sewalong update 4 – Finished!
At last! My peacoat is finished! Actually it's been finished for a few weeks now but I've only been able to take pictures today! I'm really pleased with how this turned out - it's the most complicated sew I've done since graduation, and I've learnt a lot about coat making, working with wool and using … Continue reading V1467 sewalong update 4 – Finished!
#sewphotohop Day 14: Style
#sewphotohop Day 14: Style. I'm not really built to wear most trendy clothes so I kinda of rock 'tramp chic' most of the time. I stick to jeans, sleeveless tops and cardigans most of the time - I like to layer so this works for me! High Street trends don't really work when you're 5 … Continue reading #sewphotohop Day 14: Style
Sorbetto hack #1, or the Buffalo hack
As you may remember from a post or so ago, I had a complete fail trying to draft a version of a summer top I had found on shopping trip. You may also remember that my recent polka dot Sorbetto from the weekend had been a bit of a minor success for me. Spurred on … Continue reading Sorbetto hack #1, or the Buffalo hack
Dotty about Sorbetto
I love polka dots. A lot. I don't have enough of them in my life. I also love buying fabric. A lot. But I am pretty much out of room for storing more stash, so something simply had to give! After my recent trip to Birmingham, I decided the best way to stash bust as … Continue reading Dotty about Sorbetto
