  • A Festive Red True Bias Nikko Dress

  • Happy holidays guys! Somehow I managed to pull out all of the stops and make this dress in super quick time. Which is good, because my 'vision' was to make this to wear on Christmas day.  I haven't made a Nikko before, so it was a bit of a gamble as to whether or not I would like it... if it w [...]
  • A Springtime Anna Dress

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 [...]
