Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps… the Sewoverit Doris dress

Hi All I am back this week with my most worn dress of the summer so far. I made this dress towards the end of last summer and didn’t get a chance to wear it before autumn came – I pulled it out again this spring and thought it deserved its moment on the blog!…

Me Made May made me do it – True Bias Ogden Camis

Come into the garden – Deer and Doe Hoya

Hi there – I thought I would save time by taking photos of two finished projects at once – last week I told you about my Pauline Alice Port trousers and this week I am focussing on the Hoya blouse – so I apologise if the pictures all look rather familiar. It really feels like…
