Following Fashion Revolution week back in April, I think we’re all that little bit more conscious about the supply chain within the fashion industry which can be a scary place. Buying ethically and supporting companies that do take the time and effort to ensure the welfare of their workers and their environmental impact is something […]
This month’s make is the Cali Faye Basic Pocket Skirt (if you couldn’t tell that from the title!). It’s a sweet and simple design with big pockets on the front and an elasticated waistband on the back. Now before I actually got my hands the pattern, I had a few ideas on what I wanted […]
I love a sweater dress. They’re just so darn comfy! When I picked up some grey sweatshirt fleece whilst in Paris, I knew I’d have to have some amazing loungewear out of it. It’s got a brushed back and is so super soft! After much umm-ing and ah-ing (I was also considering making a cardigan […]
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 […]

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 […]
