Honeydew Hoodie


Honeydew Hoodie


Seeing as my lovely niece is only one year old, and Lisa Comfort had 50% off in her Black Friday Sale, I decided to make her a Honeydew Hoodie for her Christmas present this year. It's a great pattern for a reversible hoodie and a lovely handmade gift for a little one. I had this ready to go in an afternoon and can't wait to see if it fits.

Klum House Woodland Dopp kit

Klum House Woodland Dopp kit


This is one of my most enjoyable and satisfying projects this year....everything you need in one kit and an impressive looking product at the end. It's so much simpler than it looks and only took 90 minutes! As part of #sewmystyle2018 I attempted bag making for the first time with the Klum House Portsmith Tote and was surprised at how easy it was to achieve a professional finish, so had no qualms about having a go at this cute pattern. This is the Woodland pouch by Klum House, which is a waterproof, boxy pouch with a sturdy zipper closure, leather tabs at the ends and is fully lined.

The Sewcialite Soiree and a customised By Hand London Anna Dress

The Sewcialite Soiree and a customised By Hand London Anna Dress

Sewing people really are the best...they even arrange events where you can wear the projects you love to make yet rarely have occasion to wear. Last month I headed over to Bristol for the Sewcialite Soiree to enjoy an evening getting to know other makers and having a good old dance too. It sounds odd enough when you tell your family that you are heading across the country to meet people you have only seen on the internet, let alone never talked to or met, and it's even more odd when you arrive at a party where everyone is not only cool with that, but also in having what they are wearing examined in detail. And yet, we all loved it. So much so that the only evidence I have that I was there is the photo booth...I took no photos because I was having such a good time! Hence why it's taken me ages to actually photograph and talk about what I made for the event....

Sewing bags is another of those things that I wouldn't have tried if it wasn't for the #sewmystyle2018 project. Normally I'm pretty much focused on dressmaking and I'm also not keen on the idea of the kind of hardware that it might entail. As it turns out, careful sourcing of supplies makes a big difference, and helped to make this a quicker make than I anticipated. With Christmas coming up soon I'm now also thinking that these can be an excellent idea for handmade gifts as they suit personal style much more easily than garments would.

Nina Lee Mayfair Dress



This is one of my top makes from this summer - it was quick and easy to wear in that glorious weather we had. I used the Nina Lee Mayfair Dress pattern and fabric from Minerva Crafts as part of the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network. All the details of fabric and fitting are over on their blog (link here). Since I've made mine I've seen quite a few glamorous maxi versions that I'm using as inspiration for winter evening wear, so don't be surprised if you see another one making an appearance over here!

Chalk and Notch Fringe Dress for #sewmystyle2018

Chalk and Notch Fringe Dress Pattern review for #sewmystyle2018

I'm leading this month's sewmystyle2018 pattern, the Fringe Dress and Blouse from Chalk and Notch. I jumped forward back at the start of the year for this pattern because I completely fell in love with the relaxed yet feminine lines and wanted to make all the versions!!!!! You can choose frm a blouse or dress, with two different bodice and sleeve options. I made this rayon version at the start of the summer and have loved wearing it throughout the season as it's so comfortable......and has pockets ๐Ÿ˜‰
