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 […]
So this is the new pattern from Tilly and the Buttons! This copy was sent as a sample – thanks Tilly! – in exchange for a review so here goes! I opted for the shirtdress over the shirt because, let’s face it, I just can’t resist a shirtdress. I’ve got so many shirtdress patterns that […]

I managed most of the my list bar one of the Simplicity dresses I wanted to make (but it’s OK because they extended the deadline for it)! Look out for the rest of those projects to be blogged on here soon! But first… Remember this dress? […]
Why wear a skirt when you can make pants? Lol. I thought I’d jump on the culotte bandwagon before summer ends and this trend is over! I impulse bought the Vogue 9075 pattern a few months ago – it’s a pattern for either a fit and flare minidress or a culotte jumpsuit and let face […]
Maxi dress hack done, so it’s time to do the short version! Using the same shirt pattern, the Mélilot from Deer and Doe, I planned to make a mini shirt dress using Version A – with the hidden button placket and collar – but without the sleeves. A combo of the 2 options available! I […]
I LOVE shirt dresses if you haven’t figured that out yet… I’ve got tons of patterns for them, vintage, modern, indie, self drafted and hacked – I just can’t help myself! My latest hankering was for a loose fitting full length casual shirt dress. I wanted it to be something that would flow and would […]
