Float like a butterfly – Named Ansa dress

Hi All I seem to be looking quite cross in the picture above – but I am actually very pleased with my latest project for the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network*. You can read all the details about it over on the Minerva website – here. I used the most beautiful Atelier Brunette viscose crepe this…

The long and short of it – Named Reeta (again!)

Hi all It has been a bit quiet around here for a few weeks – much sewing in progress but not very much getting out to take photos. My latest project took a bit longer than planned to complete as I fought a bit with the fabric and then waited even longer to get round…

Getting to the point – Deer and Doe Datura blouse

Hi there – after sharing my latest Port trousers over at Minerva Crafts Blogger Network I am back to tell you about the top I made to wear with them. I could have worn these trousers with one of my many Melilot blouses of course (and I definitely will…) but I thought I might try…

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

Hi again Me Made May already feels like ages ago – I really enjoyed taking part this year – having someone around to take photos made it much easier and I found lots of new people to follow. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I was pretty happy with much of my handmade wardrobe…

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…

I wear the trousers – Pauline Alice Port Trousers

My love for my Sew Over It Ultimate trousers is well known – if you follow me on Instagram they have been a regular fixture in my Me Made May posts for the last two years and I wear them pretty much every week. This year I wanted to try something different. One of the…

A Liberty Melilot and Me Made May

Hi there It has been a bit quiet here for a couple of weeks – there has been sewing but also a certain amount of life getting in the way, rainy Sundays meaning I don’t get out for photos and general laziness. My latest project is live over at the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network today…

Stripes of every stripe – some Grainline Studio tops

I always think that blue and white stripes – the traditional Breton style – are perfect for spring. After months of black and grey there is something really fresh and bright about blue and white together. This week I mixed blue stripes with Grainline Studio Hemlock and Linden tees and made my new favourite tops!…
