A DIY no sew leather bucket bag

I was recently gifted a leather bag kit to test by Esther of Leather Needle Thread and oh em gee it’s amazing! These kits contain everything you need to make yourself a leather bag from scratch. The only thing you need to add yourself is a hammer and a hard surface to set the rivets […]

The Megan Nielsen Dawn Jeans

The Megan Nielsen Dawn jeans have been on my radar for a little while. I’d been looking for some high waist “mom” jeans for non stretch denim and had been deciding between these and the Anna Allen Philippa pants.

A Mira dress with Hannah sleeves

I’m continuing my monochrome phase it seems with my latest make! I picked up this black and white tartan fabric from The Textile Centre recently (it says viscose on the description but feels more like a polyester mix in my opinion – I can’t be sure though!) with the aim of making a little gathered […]

This coat has only taken a year to make! I planned the Oslo coat from Tessuti last November – printed the pattern, bought the fabric and even cut it before I was struck down with the worst flu I’ve ever had! All my sewjo left and I just wasn’t interested in making it anymore once […]

A self drafted wedding dress

Many years ago I promised my sisters that should they ever get married, I’d make them their wedding dresses. I don’t think I ever quite imagined actually making them though! But when my little sister got engaged I knew I had to get my wedding dress designer/ maker hat on and get on with it! […]

The Mona jacket // Wear Lemonade

I’ve got a really special make to share with you today! It’s a jacket I made as a gift for my little sister (the one that got married recently). I’d originally intended to make it as a surprise gift for her wedding but ended up gifting it to her a few weeks earlier for her […]
