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 →

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...

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 →

Pattern hack

I'm pretty excited about this project, a pattern hack bringing together various elements I love from different patterns. The fabric is 100% tencil twill I got from Blackbird Fabrics. Tencil has been popping up in my various social media feeds for a while, but its a the first time I've worked with it. Having ordered... Continue Reading →

Deer&Doe Givre Dress

After making the Givre top ( Version B sleeveless, with a scoop neck)a few weeks ago, I was pretty excited to make myself the Givre Dreess. I combined the aspects of version A and B which I liked most: the higher neck and 3/4 sleeves from version A but without the contrasting yoke like version... Continue Reading →

Alder shirtdress

I've been humming it's the most, wonderful time of the year..... and not because its Christmas in 171 days. But because it is Indie Pattern Month! Woop woop. And week's theme is 'dresses'. Cause I've already prattled on and on about this over on the Monthly Stitch blog, I'll spare you further rambling other than the... Continue Reading →
