Me Made May 2018

I have taken in part in Me Made May for the last few years and am really pleased to be taking part again this year. So pleased in fact, that I am getting involved even further by offering a discount to participants during the last week of May! Zoe, who organises the event, will be […]

Jenny’s Cute Kitty Agnes

Jenny from Give us a Toile shares the first LSA Blog Squad blog post, and it is cute as a button!! ******** Given that I was so late to the indie pattern party after my long break from sewing, I couldn’t go on too much longer without tackling some Tilly and the Buttons. After making […]

Simplicity 8558 Pattern Review

The team at Simplicity Patterns asked me if I would review a couple of the patterns from their new collection. When I had a look at the new styles, I was delighted to say yes. The first pattern I chose was 8558, a three in one pattern from Mimi G. I’ve heard lots of good […]

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 February – Rumana Coat

February has been a really busy month for me and I wondered at times if I would get my Rumana coat finished in time! I didn’t have any dedicated chunks of sewing time so I had to squeeze in the odd hour here and there but I got there in the end! For those that […]

Pattern review – The Avid Seamstress Day Dress

When I first saw the Avid Seamstress Day dress pattern, I fell in love instantly. It is such a simple, yet flattering silhouette and, above all, it has pockets! I decided to make my first Day Dress (for I am sure there will be more) from one of the wonderfully fun Cotton and Steel fabrics […]

Fehr Trade – Yoga Leggings Review

I first met Melissa Fehr when she gave a really inspiring talk at the Sewing Weekender last year. I loved her take on drafting patterns for clothes that would work with your body as you move. I was thrilled to be asked to be part of Melissa’s blog tour to launch her book, Sew Your […]
