The Falbala blouse // Wear Lemonade

A couple of years ago I splurged on a Wear Lemonade Pattern subscription. It used to be called the “Netflix of sewing” though it’s been rebranding to the “Lemonade Pattern Corner” and allows you to download as many of their sewing patterns as you want! There’s a minimum term of 3 months (at €7,90/month) but […]

A spotted Eva maxi dress hack

I’m a bit of an impulse purchaser of online fabric and it definitely can be a problem! I always end up with fabric I don’t quite know what to do with! (Though partly that’s to do with the fact the fabric that turns up on my doorstep isn’t quite what I expected…) I had this […]

Another hacked Myosotis dress!

The Myosotis dress from Deer and Doe patterns is one of my favourite patterns to hack at the moment. The original fitted me pretty well so I know it’s a good base for making changes! For my latest version I wanted to make something long and flowy with a gorgeous printed floral viscose I got […]
