1 Dress, 2 Ways

Once you find a pattern you love make it in all the different colours/prints you can find! The wardrobe staple… no one else will even notice it’s the same dress. NewLook 6469 two different ways!

The Shiniest Kielo

The Kielo wrap jumpsuit from Named Clothing is incredible, but in this ITY Silky knit fabric it is just out of this world… I’ve no idea where i’m going to wear it to but that doesn’t matter, i’m sure anywhere would be made more fabulous with this make!

Dinosaurs for All!

Dinosaurs aren’t just for boys, they definitely aren’t just for kids… Everyone should have some Dino attire in their life. This Mika sweater by Fibremood is a lovely pattern, and there was enough in the scraps to make a sweater and pair of leggings for the kids.

Quilt Panel … to Top

The top that was unintentionally made for a friend… using a quilt panel in a more creative use whilst also pattern hacking the Tilly and the Buttons Stevie Top into a faux raglan to create a colour block finish.

Do you ever feel like a Paper Bag?

Megan Nielsen’s Opal pants/shorts pattern contains a paper bag waistband option and I had always wanted to try this look so off I went… Now at the moment I am working really hard to try and sew my stash, I have such a large quantity of fabric in my studio that just sits there I […]

Dandelion Denim Jumpsuit

Blowing a dandelion seems to be one of those things we grow out of… watching my children get so much joy from such a simple place is probably what drew me to this fabric.

A Pop Art inspired Quilt

Although I would label myself to be a dressmaker I spend a huge amount of my time these days crafting and quilting. I just absolutely love to create, it doesn’t matter the medium its all about the process. Quilting is something I’m completely self taught with, but after years of experimenting and trying different things […]
