Morris Blazer

I am definitely behind the times when it comes to the Morris Blazer - but for Indie Pattern Month week 3 (around the world) it seemed like the perfect opportunity to get sewing. Plus it really fits with my plans to create a work wardrobe. Like my Salme dress, I used a nice stretch twill... Continue Reading →


Granville Shirt

I have been searching for 'the' button up shirt for ages now and I think I may have finally found it! The Granville Shirt from Sewaholic. I've never made anything from Sewaholic but I kept coming across beautiful versions on Instagram that really looked like the fit I was after. I really liked the look... Continue Reading →

Another Salme Buttonless Shirt Dress

Wahoo its Indie Pattern Month and week one's theme is dresses! My entry is the Salme Buttonless Shirt Dress, which I've made once before several years ago. I'm on a quest at the moment to sew a new work wardrobe, as much of my work clothes don't fit, and instead of continuing to feel bad... Continue Reading →

Nixie Briefs

I got the pattern for the Nixie Briefs from Jennifer Lauren Handmade back in April but it wasn't until last weekend that I sewed my first pair. I figured that all my jersey scraps would make an excellent underwear collection. I'm in-between size 10 and 12 and wasn't sure which would be a better fit.... Continue Reading →

Can’t get enough of the D&D Givre Dress

I fell in love with Art Galley Fabric (AGF) jersey  a while ago, when I made myself the Blue Ginger Doll 'Bonnie Top'. But I'd forgotten just how gorgeous the 95%cotton / 5% spandex blend feels until I made myself a summer  version Deer and Doe Givre Dress. Since then I've practically lived in that...

Another Givre

Seeing as we in the third or fourth week of proper summer weather, I decided to whip up another Deer&Doe Givre dress, this time with some organic Elvelyckan Jersey I've had in my stash for a few months. As I had the 42 traced, I followed the same process as last time, sewing with a... Continue Reading →

D&D Givre Dress – a summer version

I've made myself two versions of the Deer and Doe Givre Dress (vs 1 & vs 2) and while I loved the pattern I wasn't planning another one anytime soon. But after two weeks of hot summer sunshine, while I was cutting out my last project (a pair of Kwik Sew pajamas in this Artgallery... Continue Reading →

Simplicity 2363

I've had this fabric in my stash for about four or five years, I bought it while I was living in India and even then I knew it was destined to be the Simplicity 2363 dress. I love this pattern especially the shape of the bodice and shoulders, but somehow I never got around to... Continue Reading →

Lakeside shorts

While I was in Mexico I wore my Lakeside pajamas (pattern from Grainline Studios) every night. I really like the style of the shorts and started thinking about making a pair for day wear - something that would be casual and comfortable.  Initially I was hoping I would have enough scraps of the lovely green...
