Ostara top

I loved the neckline of the Ostara top from Jennifer Lauren Handmade and already had a few fabrics in my stash that would be just perfect. I decided this blue spotted jersey I bought at Raystitch a year ago would look just lovely with the pleated sweetheart neckline. I'm on a mission at the moment... Continue Reading →


Another D&D Givre Dress

With no money and little time, having a new dress for my eighth wedding anniversary this month put me in a sewing quandary. I could of course wear something I've already got, but nothing seemed quite right. So I set out to carefully search my fabric stash  and comb through my patterns, hoping that I could...

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 →

Deer&Doe Givre Top

As soon as I saw the Givre pattern from Deer&Doe, I fell in love. I have a special love of jersey dresses but often shy away from them out of fear of an overly form fitting pattern. But after seeing some really beautiful versions online by women of all shapes and sizes I decided it... Continue Reading →

Pajamas sewn with love

Someone close and special to me is spending a lot of time in the hospital at the moment. Seeing as she's stuck in her pajamas for the whole time, I figured it was important that she had some fashionable and comfortable pajamas. Plus its as close to a hug as it possible when we're in...

Seeing as I had the Bonnie top pattern still out, I thought I'd quickly whip up one more. This time out of a lovely jersey (I think 95% cotton 5% elastane) I bought last year at Raystich. My me-made wardrobe doesn't have many plain tops but that's what I often reach for on lazy days. They're also... Continue Reading →

Bonnie Top

I really love the Bonnie Top from Blue Ginger Doll and my previous versions in yellow and crazy geometric print get worn a lot. Because it is such a comfortable top I often reach for it in the morning, but at the same time I think it looks ace and often wear them out in... Continue Reading →

Another Bonnie top

I'm not suppose to be sewing for me. I have a top secret project I'm working on with a friend and G. has been begging for some new shirts. But..... I had the pattern right there and the fabric sitting on top of the chair. What could I do? Besides the Bonnie top is super fast... Continue Reading →

Autumn colors

In the last week it really feels like autumn has arrived and with it my desire for snuggly comfortable fabrics, in warm colors. Perfect timing then as Girl Charlee in the UK is having a massive sale until Sunday. I really should have a child lock on my internet - one that is set to... Continue Reading →
