This particular top is where my sewing journey began... Back in 2014, for some unknown reason, I got into The Great British Sewing Bee, (series 3). I'd never sewn previously, other than the odd button, and I had no interest in making clothes, knew nothing about patterns or markings, darts or pleats, bias binding or… Continue reading Where it all started… The Great British Sewing Bee and my Drape Drape 2 Asymmetric Top
Here’s a round-up of some of my most recent makes… SEW OVER IT ULTIMATE CULOTTES and CAMI First up is something I never thought I’d make or wear… culottes! I always love them on others, but being short and curvy I tend to look rather dumpy if clothing is loose, shapeless, or ends at a really unflattering… Continue reading Three (or rather four) recent makes

Bonjour! I’m still laid up with my ruptured Achilles, so I can’t sew at the moment, however… here’s one I made earlier! It’s the Tilly and the Buttons Agnes top that I made into a polo neck (pre-injury). I’ve made the Agnes a few times before and I think it’s a fabulous pattern, with plenty… Continue reading Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Top Polo Hack
Hello, lovely readers. I'm writing this post from my sofa while I rest my leg: I'm on crutches for at least 10 weeks, as I ruptured my Achilles tendon playing in a badminton match last Friday - owie! - though on the plus side, my pink cast is rather fabulous! Anyway, I'm absolutely delighted to… Continue reading Please vote!
