Jenny H’s Deer and Doe Plantain Top

Jenny from the Wardrobe Architect, has completed her next make for the LSABlogSquad – the Plantain top by Deer and Doe from our Clara yarn dyed jersey. It is such a simple but staple garment for your handmade wardrobe. ******** For my second Like Sew Amazing Blog Squad make I opted to try a pattern I […]

Seren dress – pattern review

With two new Tilly and the Buttons patterns released this month, we are spoilt for choice but I decided to start with the Seren dress as I haven’t sewn a lovely summery dress in a while. I was a bit torn between the tie front and plain front but I decided to go with something […]

Honeycomb shirt – pattern review

Honeycomb is the latest pattern release from indie designer Ana from Cocowawa Crafts. It has an option of making it as a dress or a shirt. The gorgeous Ana invited me and a few other sewing bloggers to a sewing day at the Village Haberdashery to make our own Honeycombs. It was a wonderful day […]

The cat’s pyjamas

I had some of this stunning Cat Nap Pink Art Gallery Fabrics cotton that I bought from Sew Me Sunshine in my stash for a little while. I was planning on making the Carolyn pyjamas by Closet Case Patterns, however, as I always wear vest tops to bed, I didn’t want to make the Carolyn […]

Lander Pants – Pattern Review

I have had the PDF of the True Bias Lander Pants printed out and ready to go since they were first released but I was waiting for the perfect fabric to come along. I recently got the most stunning linen/viscose blend into the shop and knew that it would be a match made in heaven. […]

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 […]
