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 […]

A hacked Closet Case Amy jumpsuit/ dungaree

When does a jumpsuit become a dungaree and vice versa? 🤣. An important (not really) distinction to make as I think I made this Closet Case jumpsuit pattern into what would be considered a dungaree! Maybe… Well that confusion aside, here’s a new outfit I’ve made! I took the Amy jumpsuit from Closet Case Patterns […]

The Magnolia dress // Deer & Doe

This’ll be my last Minerva Crafts post for a while whilst I knuckle down and actually get started on my little sister’s wedding dress. Following in from my previous two makes for them (here and here), I’m carrying on the wrap dress theme! This time I made the Deer and Doe Magnolia dress which has […]
