Floral Sophistication

Hi everyone, As part of my very extended birthday celebrations, my Mum and my sister took my out on the Saturday. I didn’t know what I was doing but I was told to have a nice dress ready… Is there ever a better excuse to make something?! I was certain I wouldn’t be able to…

Birthday Dress

Well, it happened… I turned 30… My amazing family ensured, I had a truly fabulous time so I didn’t wallow in my own sadness at getting old! It’s true what people say, it doesn’t feel any different! To take my mind off the impending doom which was turning 30 I decided to make sure that…

Pencil Pencil Skirt

Hi everyone, I love that making your own clothes means that you can play with prints and essentially create whatever you want to wear so when I bought this super cute pencil fabric from Sew Me Sunshine and I was looking through my fabric options in my Stash Buster Fabric Post I decided on a…

Nancy Dress

I won the Sew Over It Nancy Dress as part of my prize from Indie Pattern Month Dress week last year. If I’m completely honest, it was a pattern that I had been looking at. The dress has a floaty style which I didn’t think would suit my figure as I need a bit more…

Mia Set

I’ve been making attempts to get through my to-do box before getting distracted by some of the lovely fabrics you may have seen in my last post. The Mia set which came with Simply Sewing Magazine last July, tempted me straight away and I used this unusual fabric I got for a bargain on eBay….

Self-induced Stash Buster Challenge 

Happy New Year folks, This is the year I turn 30, this is the year I have been married 6 phenomenal years, this is the year we go to Portugal as an amazing treat from my in-laws. It is the year that I have to complete several of my psychology masters modules alongside many more…

Taylor Trench Coat

Hi everyone,  Sorry I have been a bit M.I.A. I replaced my last blog post with a vlog and didn’t manage to get one together for last week – plus most of my makes are christmas related at the minute so I can’t share! I definitely will afterwards. Anyway, I finally blogged my Cleo on Friday and thought I’d…

Sewing Cleo

Hi everyone, I’m massively late on the bandwagon with this one… But I’ve made a Cleo! The pattern, by Tilly and the Buttons, (incase you didn’t know) has been made by pretty much everyone, in every shape,  size and hack going but I was convinced it wasn’t for me. I didn’t think the shape would suit…

Sunshine Bloggers Ice-cream Shirt Dress

Hi everyone, I am so excited about my first blog post for the Sunshine Bloggers Team! When I was asked to be part of it, other than being RIDICULOUSLY excited, I was all ice creams in my head because I knew I HAD to use the amazing Rico ice cream fabric for my make. It’s…

Appleton Dress

I make a special effort to try and find a fabric shop whenever I go away. On our recent trip to Belgium, my Mother-in-law asked the lovely man on reception at our hotel and he was able to direct us to one called Moda Stoffen and I was in heaven. I bought two fabrics, a…

Me Made Windermere

In the latest in my series of me made holidays I have recently been to Lake Windermere for the weekend with my Mum and my Sister. As many of you will know, I always try to make something nice ready for my holidays, but I try to stick to practicality too. With this in mind…

Simple Sew Pussy-bow Blouse

Well, I think I may have found it – it has taken several  blouse making attempts (here, here and here, to name a few!) and a lot of frustration but I appear to have actually made a blouse which has the perfect fit! It is the simple Sew Pussy-bow dress and blouse and I’ve had it…
