McCall’s 7969 AKA the current IT dress!

There’s always that Big 4 pattern that seems to make it big every couple of years. The last one was the Vogue 9253 with the super deep V neck which, to be fair, is still pretty popular. The current one seems to be the McCall’s pattern 7969. It’s been popular enough that I’ve noticed quite […]

The Dawn shorts // Megan Nielsen

I’ve made the Dawn jeans by Megan Nielsen once before (see it here!) and whilst I love the overall look and the appearance of the fit, I never found them quite comfortable to wear. That’s the trouble with a fitted jean in a non stretch denim! I’d made View A which is the tapered leg […]

The Winslow Culottes // Helen’s Closet

It’s been a while since my last post! I’ve been feeling alarmingly uninspired to blog of late – it’s very unlike me! I’ve still been sewing and making (slowly) though!

The Bertie Dress // Seamwork

I treated myself to a year’s unlimited Seamwork subscription late last year whilst they had a half price discount going on. For $90USD it seemed good value for the amount of patterns you’d get access to and, of course, all the new ones that would get released in the year. I’ll be honest, I don’t […]
