The Vikisews dress again!

I’m not normally one to reuse patterns in quick succession but I couldn’t help it this time! I was sent this amazing black polka dot viscose crepe from Sew Me Sunshine which I knew would make the best version of the Vikisews платье вики (Viki) that I made only a couple of weeks ago! 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 […]

A Nora with a Coco neckline

I’m going to affectionately nickname this combo Cora! I decided to try the Tilly and the Buttons Nora pattern again – I was in the mood for an oversized tee to go with my Dawn jeans – but my previous incarnations of this pattern had always left a little something to be desired. I could […]

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 […]

On copying a RTW sweater

I’ve been pretty good at not buying clothes from the shops for the couple of years. And apart of underwear and socks, I hadn’t bought anything new for at least two! Until one day this summer when I was caught out late without a jacket and I bought my emergency jumper. Yep that is what […]
