Not to be confused with a flamenco skirt by the way… I picked up this fun flamingo fabric from Tissus Reine in Paris a couple of months ago. I ended up only buying a metre so I was a bit limited in what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted a skirt but I […]
Before I get started, let’s call out the elephant in the room – my awful pattern matching! Which, let’s face it, was pretty much non existent in this make. I didn’t realise just how off the grain I was until after I’d cut everything out! This is definitely a big reminder for me to true […]
This month’s #sewmystyle has been a bit slow going for a lot of people. Me included! The project for March is the Virginia legging from Megan Nielsen. It’s a really basic pattern to make leggings either with a low waistband (suitable for maternity) or a natural waist. I finally got going on it thought after […]
I made this cat themed blouse for my third Minerva Crafts make. (I think I’m going to have to make a tutorial on how to make that cat paw collar in future! It’s just too much fun!) Check out the full post and photos here!
I made this jersey faux wrap dress a week or so ago. I loved the pattern – really simple and quick to make and it fit pretty well with only small adjustments really needed. I knew I wanted a velvet version of this dress and found the perfect navy stretch velvet for it. I had […]

I’m stash busting today! I’ve had this piece of fabric for five years now, bought on a whim in Lewisham market when I was working near there. I’d never found the right project for it (same as the few dozen other pieces of fabric I’m currently hoarding) or at least I wasn’t sure how well […]
So this is the new pattern from Tilly and the Buttons! This copy was sent as a sample – thanks Tilly! – in exchange for a review so here goes! I opted for the shirtdress over the shirt because, let’s face it, I just can’t resist a shirtdress. I’ve got so many shirtdress patterns that […]
I meant to sit down and make the Simplicity 1458 dress for the Sewing Challenge as planned but I got a bit side-tracked and made this instead! This is a dress version of a crop top I made earlier as part of the Simplicity Sewing Challenge, a vintage 70s style button back halter top. When […]
It’s September! How did every do with their August sewing plans? I managed most of the my list bar one of the Simplicity dresses I wanted to make (but it’s OK because they extended the deadline for it)! Look out for the rest of those projects to be blogged on here soon! But first… Remember this dress? […]
