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!…

The #MIYMarch skirt – MIY Granville

It’s Spring, the clocks have gone forward, there are flowers everywhere, the sun is shining and its the first post of the year where I don’t need to wear black tights! Throughout March I have been taking part in #MIYMarch organised by Wendy Ward, usually with Instagram photohops I tend to play along for the…

She flies like a …bat? Another Named Blair tee

Hi Again I am back again to share my first Named Blair batwing tee. You can find the pattern here and it is a very quick make – I made this one in a couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon to check the fit before I cut into the jersey for my Minerva Crafts…

Mixing things up – split hem Grainline Linden

Hi again So last week I wasn’t entirely happy with my Named Talvikki – despite really liking the fabric and pattern I just had mixed feelings about them together – thank-you for all the comments and feedback! This week I took one of the aspects of the Talvikki that I loved – the deep split…
