All hearts for Shelby

Do you ever have an idea for a dress and then find the exact pattern for it? It’s a rare thing but it happened! I was channeling all the 90s vibes when I stumbled across the Shelby Dress from True Bias. It’s a dress/ romper pattern with a button front, V neck and short sleeves […]

My first make of 2020 is done! Recently I’ve been really in the mood for a classic shirt with a twist. I have a holiday to Morocco coming up and I thought it would be an excellent idea as a cover up! I bought the Olya shirt from Paper Theory to try out – the […]

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 […]
