High waisted ginger jeans

This is my sixth pair of the amazing Ginger Jeans from Closet Case Patterns. What can I say?  I love this pattern.  There really isn't too much to say that I haven't said on previous versions (from left to right: vs B, vs A, vs B, hack & hack: I've learned however that the choice...

Vogue V8597 pullover top

Vogue V8597 is an old favorite, but I haven't made it for many years as it requires so much fabric to create to lovely cowl collar.  But I bought this fabric from Girl Charlee years ago with this pattern in mind specifically. I really loved the color, however once I'd got I realized that it... Continue Reading →

Pleated pencil skirt

So last month after making my Buttonless shirt dress, I had just enough fabric left over to make myself a pleated pencil skirt from Delia Creates. I've made this pattern a few times before. But this is the first time I've used a stretch fabric and not lined it - and I have to say... Continue Reading →

Granville Shirt Take Two

My entry for week three of Indie Pattern Month (one pattern, two ways) is the Granville Shirt from Sewaholic. I made this pattern first last month and despite a few sizing issues (which I'll talk about below) I knew it was going to be a favorite pattern. It also works perfectly in continuing my quest...

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 →

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...
