May 23, 2017

So does anyone know where April and May went? As this blog is really just an electronic diary/catalogue of the things I make you won't ever find me apologising for not posting or being absent for lengths of time but seriously I feel like I've lost two months of my life...

This Monarch dress was one of the main patterns that I wanted to get sewn up for my first ever Kids Clothes Week (20-26 March 2017). I did want to sew a few more things but I got into sewing this and decided to go all out on the construction. It was like falling down a...

These were by far my favorite make of 2016. Everytime I wore them I felt pulled together and stylish. There is always that one thing in your wardrobe that makes you feel great and these are it for me. It's partly to do with the material of course which was a tan viscos...

In addition to Project #SewMyStyle there are a few other patterns that I want to sew up. Well I have an endless list of patterns I want to sew up so I though it best to make the ever popular #MakeNine2017 list (created by Lucky Lucille) to keep me focused.
