Seamwork Audrey jacket – Pattern Review

Is it wrong that I decided to make a denim jacket mainly as somewhere to display my sewing pins and patches?!

SewMyStyle April – Marigold Jumpsuit Hack

With Spring on the horizon, it seems fitting that the Sew My Style pattern for April is the Tilly and the Buttons Marigold jumpsuit. Funnily enough, the pattern has never appealed to me as much as Tilly’s other patterns because I am a short girl anyway, and I think it has a tendency to make … Continue reading SewMyStyle April – Marigold Jumpsuit Hack
