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...

Me Made May 2018

Me Made May 2018 has come and gone! In addition to wearing a me-made item every day (which I kinda do anyway), I wanted to hear a me-made item (ie two me-made items) at least three times a week. As with the last few years, leisure wear is definitely lacking from my me-made wardrobe. But... Continue Reading →

Another Moss Skirt

Last year at the Great British Sewing Bee - Live show, I discovered the amazing stall of Holland and Sherry and their most luxurious fabrics. I indulged and bought myself five fabrics, ranging from silk/cashmere blends to worsted wools. I was amazed at how relatively affordable they were but since then, have been too afraid...

Moss skirt

This is the fourth project I've made with fabric from my stash - I got this lovely denim at the Knitting and Stitching show a few years ago. It's a medium/heavy weight and I just love the flecks of color. I bought it with the intention of sewing shorts, but my current RTW shorts are... Continue Reading →

Another Ostara top

I really loved my last Ostara top and decided that while I had the pattern pieces out, I'd go ahead and cut another. This time I wanted to use a Elvelychan Design from my stash. I love this print and the fabric feels just gorgeous! This fabric is a relatively recent addition, which I got... Continue Reading →
