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. What swayed me to the Dawn jeans were the multiple leg styles and positive experience of […]

The Perfecto jacket

I randomly found some sewing patterns in a little French bookstore whilst in Paris this year. The instructions were in French of course but the patterns seemed simple and it was reasonably priced enough that I thought it was worth a try! I picked up two – a little fitted dress and this biker style […]

The Oslo coat // Tessuti Patterns

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 […]

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 […]

The Rae pants // Named Clothing

This’ll probably my last summery make of the year! I’d been meaning to make the Rae pants from the Named Clothing book Breaking the Pattern for a few months. (Check out my YouTube run through of the book here!). I thought they’d make a great summer staple as a swishy breezy casual trouser. It took […]

The Nénuphar jacket // Deer and Doe

A couple of months ago I ended up on Ichiroya – a website selling vintage kimono fabric. It was a long dark rabbit hole of beautiful things and I left with two rolls of silk fabric! It took a few weeks to arrive and even with the cost of customs on top, I thought the […]

The Portia cami // Style Arc

I’ve always loved a camisole – they’re so cute and delicate and really rather practical when you’re layering up! I’ve made a couple over the years (though one of my faves is still an old Forever 21 one!) some with great success and others, well, not so great. Mostly I think it’s to do with […]

The Myla Bag

I’ve got more bag making to show you today! I was sent the Myla bag kit from One Stitch is Never Enough a few weeks ago just after my first foray into using cork fabric (check it out here). I loved that someone was championing the use of this unique material. I was super curious […]
