  • 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!

While I had boxes stacking up around me, I made it my mission to [...]
  • A Liberty-print Quilted Bomber Jacket

  • This post has been a long time coming... but here I am - FINALLY showing you all my most challenging piece yet!  And I'm so proud of the result.  I hope you like it too! My brother and I had a little jaunt up at the woods with the dog to take these photos.  We decided it would be a lovely spo [...]
