#sewphotohop Day 15: Sewing space. My sewing space is ALWAYS a complete tip with stuff on every surface - it needs a proper sort out! But I do have a giant window to sew next to and an even more enormous cutting table to work on, plus lots of room for books, patterns and my … Continue reading #sewphotohop Day 15: Sewing space
#sewphotohop Day 8: Made for someone else. I rarely sew for anyone else - partially because I'm rarely asked but also because when I don't get given a deadline I will put things off for ages 😂 but this (a Christmas 2015 present for @ponchomountain) will be finished and blogged soon!
#sewphotohop Day 5: Print or solid. I always think I have a wardrobe made up of solid colours but in hindsight I haven't made anything in a solid colour fabric for years! You can wear most prints if you only ever wear jeans 😂
#sewphotohop Day 4: Signature Look. I don't really think I have a signature style, but I almost always wear jeans and it turns out I love a good shirt! Throw in some cardigans or jackets and some superga sneakers and I am good to go!

Now I can make clothes to fit all my … Continue reading #sewphotohop Day 2: Favourite skill
#sewphotohop Day 1: Hello! I'm Jenny! I sew, blog about it and buy too much fabric! There are worse habits!
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
You all may be aware of this by now but as I am part sloth, I like being as comfortable as possible at all times and as such I am a huge fan of pyjama trousers. There is nothing like having a nice hot bath and then stepping into lovely clean pjs and getting all snug … Continue reading The bee’s knees
Some of you may have noticed that I have been somewhat silent during Me Made May - doesn't take much guess work to realise I just didn't take part. I first became aware of Me Made May last year, around the time I started my blog and started discovering more sewcialists online, but as I … Continue reading Thoughts on Me Made May
