I was sent down a Russian pattern company rabbit hole the other day thanks to one of my YouTube commenters. I found a bunch of new companies (well, new to me anyway) and spent half a day trawling their websites! I ended up with a bunch of patterns from Grasser and La Forme and it’s […]
A new Mélilot shirt was on my Make Nine list for this year. I’d made a couple of short sleeved dresses from this pattern in the past but I wanted to make the full length sleeve option. This Deer and Doe pattern is definitely a firm favourite of mine. I like the hidden button placket […]
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’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 […]

I’m adding a few of my past makes onto this blog (partly to bulk it out and partly to make it look like I’m a much faster dressmaker than I actually am…) from my other blog Emily’s Little World. You can check out my original post here. This is the Orla pattern from indie […]
I liked the idea of the Tilly and the Buttons Mimi blouse when I saw it. It’s one of the ones from her Love at First Stitch book. I love that whole retro vibe but I really didn’t like the sleeve on this one. Sorry Tilly. I don’t know if it’s just me but I […]
