My first week of Me Made May is over and the results, if I am honest, are as expected. I was able to wear me-made every day, I desperately need more trousers and jeans and I still don't like having my picture taken! The thing I didn't expect was that I have actually do enough … Continue reading Me Made May 2018 – week 1
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
Hello all! I'm not even going to claim that normal broadcasting will resume shortly as it, in all likelihood, probably won't - don't worry, I have been sewing but m currently having a wee struggle with life, the universe and everything else right now. I'm still trying to keep up with your blogs and makes and … Continue reading The Granville shirt
I've completed a make! Already! Well, I actually finished this a few days ago but still - a very productive start to 2016! After my last attempt at Sewaholic's Belcarra pattern (which turned out to be a complete dud, by the way, which you can read about here) I was determined to have another go … Continue reading The first make of 2016!
#bpsewvember Day 30 - Next up. When I've finished my peacoat for the #v1467sewalong (just buying buttons and sewing buttonholes to go) I want to make the Sewaholic Granville shirt in this salmon and blue flannel. Also just wanted to say thank you to everyone who's liked and commented on my posts both here and … Continue reading #bpsewvember Day 30 – Next up
At last! A real post! This has actually been sat in my queue for a while because I was too bone-idle to upload the pictures... Whoops! I finally made the Belcarra by Sewaholic! Annnnnd I’m not in love with it. At all. I ordered the pattern from Trixie Lixie’s ebay shop, and was so excited … Continue reading Belcarra Disaster
#sewphotohop Day 25: Behind the seams. I like basting like this as it stops slippery fabrics wiggling out place. PS: Sorry I'm a day behind! The last few on the #sewphotohop list have been tough!
...have those days where you have all the best intentions but get absolutely nothing done? OK, so I exaggerate a bit - I did finally clean the bathroom... I had planned to possibly finish my Belcarra today, toilé and all. But as you can probably guess, that hasn't quite happened. I got my fabric out last week only … Continue reading Do you ever…
Just a few updates today - no project currently on the go but several in the works! First up, the Belcarra blouse from Sewaholic! I finally bought my 'medicinal' pattern (woo! No more tonsillitis!) from Trixie Lixie and I'm going to start this tomorrow night. I have this great floral fabric that I picked up at the Knitting … Continue reading New projects
Tonsillitis. I have tonsillitis and a ton of penicillin. This week I was off work and went to Dorset camping with my mum and brother for a few days by the seaside. We had meant to be at Glastonbury Festival but due to circumstances, plans just didn't come together. However we still had a lovely … Continue reading Went to Dorset, all I brought back was…
