A cosy cardigan!

Onto my second community challenge! This time it’s the Cosy Cardi Challenge set out by the Stitch Sisters (@thestitchsistersuk @sodburysewing/ @shesewsvintage) and Amanda (@amanda_isewalot)!

The Tabor V neck sweater

I’m getting winter ready much earlier than usual this year! Adding to my cosy sweater pile is the Tabor V neck jumper from Sew House Seven! I picked up this pattern when it was released earlier this year with the intention of making lots of lightweight t-shirts from it. Unsurprisingly those tees didn’t materialise but […]

The new Autumn patterns from Tilly and the Buttons have finally hit the shelves! The Nora and Ness patterns (top and skirt respectively) are typical Tilly patterns with a great retro style, easy to wear vibe that I’m sure we’ll be seeing plastered across our social media feeds before long! Today I’m showing off the […]

For this month’s Minerva Crafts Blogger Network make, I decided I’d get started on some autumn/ winter sewing and I’ve made the Pilvi dress from Named Clothing.
