My jersey Bettine dress

I made a couple of Tilly and the Buttons Bettine dresses when they were first released. I love the simplicity of the shape and those gorgeous feature pockets. I do find that I don’t wear them that much though as they are both in lighter coloured fabrics, which I wouldn’t wear tights with so they […]

Nina Lee Camden Skirt review

When this stunning Maya cotton sateen came in to the shop, I knew I wanted to make a skirt out of it. I decided that the latest release from Nina Lee would be the perfect candidate to show off the print. The Camden calls for a more structured fabric so the cotton sateen was a […]

I was lucky enough to be a tester for the Tilly and the Buttons Eden coat so I got to see it in all its glory late last year. I chose to make the wool duffle version as I had an old mustard RTW one that was on its last legs so needed replacing. I […]

Casey Sweater Review

Having spent the last couple of months doing DIY and getting the shop ready for opening, sewing definitely took a back seat. However, when we got our new delivery of jerseys in last week, I was completely inspired to start making again! I fell in love with the Casey top that Andrea, the face behind […]

2018 – My Year in Review

I genuinely don’t think I have ever had a year as eventful as 2018. So many things have happened, and fortunately most for the positive! January I started the year by becoming part of the Sew My Style leadership team. I was delighted to be picked for this and really enjoyed working behind the scenes […]
