Carolyn Pyjamas – Shirt Hack and Review

May has been quite a bit of a crazy month for me with the pandemic and work so I haven't had a chance to blog much. Instead I've been sharing my makes on Instagram. One of my most recent makes was a Carolyn Pyjamas shirt. I hacked the pattern by squaring the collar and grading... Continue Reading →

Sew Over It Hebden T-Shirt

The Hebden T-shirt was released by Sew Over It as a Stitch School class in December last year and I really liked the pattern, however since I am quite comfortable sewing with jersey I didn't really want to pay for the subscription for one pattern. So you can imagine how excited I was when they... Continue Reading →

I'm very excited to have finally given the Closet Case Jenny Overalls and Trousers a try and I am quite proud of the result.

Around the time it was released, my local Spotlight store also... Continue Reading →

The first item I made was a self-drafted lunch bag made from black canvas and animal raincoat fabric. I based the pattern on my boyfriend's lunch bag, and I am really happy... Continue Reading →

Simple Sew Tania Top

In Winter I often find myself only wanting to make cozy and warm clothing, however those are often not the clothes that I gravitate towards when getting dressed to leave the house. So as a result, I have to push myself to use fabrics other than jersey and fleece! Following a recent sewing fail after... Continue Reading →

Plantains Aplenty

My first blog post! Since this is my first post I figured why not start with my favourite sewing pattern... If you couldn't guess from the title, it's the Deer and Doe Plantain T-Shirt! It is my most used pattern by far and the fact that it is FREE makes me love it even more.... Continue Reading →
