I was very fortunate to be given some money for Christmas, so I thought I’d put it to good use and buy myself an overlocker, something I’ve often thought about getting, but never had the funds to do so. Plus I wasn’t sure if I actually needed one! After plenty of research, I settled on… Continue reading Overlocker Time!
When Lisa showed us this gorgeous, drapey rose gold sequin fabric on the December Sew Over It Vlog I couldn’t resist, even though I’ve never been a sequin and sparkles kinda gal. I don’t normally go out-out much (ahh!) so don’t really have the need for going-outy-type-sparkly-tops, but with Christmas just around the corner I knew… Continue reading Merry Sparkly Christmas!
I bought this stunning silk from Sew Over It a few weeks ago, but decided (for once!) that I wouldn't rush straight into it and instead find THE perfect shirt/blouse pattern for it. I’d already made the short-sleeve version of the Deer and Doe Melilot Shirt, which I’d purchased as a kit from the lovely… Continue reading The Shirt Search
I came across this pattern brand at The Great British Sewing Bee Live after spotting this on a display, isn’t it amazing?! I knew I *needed* one in my life, so bought the pattern there and then and had a good chat with Mrs M, who told me the name of the fabric – Cloud… Continue reading Maven French Dart Shift – Review
Hello all, I’ve been rather busy with work and getting back on my feet the last few weeks, but I have also been sewing when time’s allowed, so I thought I’d do a round-up of a few things I’ve made… First up is the Itch to Stitch Anza Jumpsuit, which I wore to The Great… Continue reading Sewing Round-Up
The long-awaited, much-anticipated, and considerably-coveted Coco Jacket pattern just had to be mine as soon as it was pre-released as part of the Sew Over It PDF Club! My decision on fabric was an easy one… it’s classic Chanel-esque in ‘my’ colours. It’s also from Sew Over It, but I’ve just checked and it looks like it’s now… Continue reading Sew Over It Coco Jacket – #Daphne
Like #Daphne I have recently 'found' Itch to Stitch patterns that are drafted so brillantly for a cup size bigger than a B! This is the second Itch to Stitch pattern I have used. I admit to being so excited by discovering them, I have a queue of literally all their patterns designed with cup… Continue reading Marbella (the dress not the holiday destination)
Last week I created what is now my favourite smart-casual outfit! (Until my next make, no doubt. Fickle?! Me?!) It consists of an Itch to Stitch Beausoleil Cold Shoulder Top and Sew Over It Mia Jeans from Lisa's My Capsule Wardrobe eBook. I started making the Mias a couple of weeks ago, but broke off… Continue reading Two makes, one outfit
Eve is a full wrap dress with a tie waist and is designed for feminine, drapey fabrics and comes with two sleeve options - floaty and short, or straight and elbow length - and either with a dipped or straight hem. I’ve seen some glorious Eves on Instagram in fabulous floral prints... but I already… Continue reading Sew Over It Eve Dress
I’d wanted to take part in #SewTogetherForSummer but, because of my injury, I’d been unable to get in my sewing room for a while and had pretty much given up hope of participating. Then Sew Over It released the Penny Dress last week and I fell in love with her, so, as I’m a bit… Continue reading Perfect Penny – Sew Over It Penny Dress
