  • A swishy, summery Martha dress

  • So I have been one busy sewing bee, working flat out on this, my latest make, in time to wear to a very exciting sewing event this weekend. The Sewing Weekender, organised by The English Girl at Home and The Foldline, is taking place in Cambridge (lucky for me!) and I so wanted to have a new dre [...]
  • An Indoor Jungle Shirt Dress

  • Hello lovelies. So a little bit of a delay with this, my latest make (soz!). And before I get started, I just want to jump straight in and declare my love for this dress! It was somewhat rushed through the sewing room - out of a mixture of leaving it last-minute, and sheer excitement. Excitem [...]
  • Introducing my shiny new Sewing Room

  • Since moving into our new place just before Christmas, I have been busy beavering away to get our spare room set up as my sewing room.

This was organised via the genius of The Foldline website, and we met up at Backstitch near Cambridge. As this was our first meet, I thought it would be best to k [...]
  • New website excitement!

  • Probably the most excited I have been since moving into my new house, is the launch of my shiny new website! It's been a long time in the making - and I'm thrilled with how it looks. Now I can't wait to get sewing and showing you all my latest makes. Anyway, have a nosey round the site [...]
  • Happy New Year!

  • So here we are, with 2016 almost upon us! Crazy times. In all honesty, I am happy to see the back of 2015.  Not for bad reasons - mainly because I feel totally out of steam with all of the madness of work, having a big birthday (inc party, obvs), Christmastime and managing to move house! Phee [...]
