Utu pinafore hack AKA the most sparkly dress ever!

Who’s ready to party this festive season away? I am! 🕺🏻 I’ve made the MOST sparkly dress ever in time for The New Craft House Winter Party this weekend.

A DIY leopard wrap frill skirt

Did you know that leopard is considered a neutral? It totally goes with everything apparently (and there was even a talk at the Fashion & Textile Museum on it)! I thought I’d try my hand at making the most neutral skirt I could – a frilly maxi length wrap skirt! (That was sarcasm by the […]

A Reeta playsuit hack

On a recent lookout for new patterns, I found one I really liked from République du Chiffon – the Yvonne playsuit. Which was unfortunately out of stock (and also not in English).

A hacked McCalls 7543 dress

Today I’m bringing you my latest Minerva Crafts project! This make is ALL about the fabric. I picked out the gorgeous Lady McElroy Cobra Corsage print in the cotton lawn (it also comes in a jersey crepe).
