New Look 6184

Welcome back! Hot on the tails of the two Stevie tunics I blogged about last week I moved straight on to another dress pattern. This next make has been quite a satisfying quick sew that I only made as a wearable toile but it turns out it fits quite well. The pattern in question is … Continue reading New Look 6184

A tale of two Orsolas

I've had the By Hand London Orsola dress for a while but it took the 2018 #sewtogetherforsummer hashtag to bring the Orsola back into my sewing plans orbit. I took part in the hashtag last year and made my version of the Alex shirtdress and this time the task was to make a wrap dress. … Continue reading A tale of two Orsolas

Seamwork Astoria

The Seamwork Astoria was a bit of an unexpected make as I didn't buy my fabric with this in mind.

However some … Continue reading Seamwork Astoria

Tilly and the Buttons Agnes top

An Agnes duo

Since I started sewing again, I've mostly stuck to sewing with wovens apart from two projects - the Jolee top and the Sew Over It Cowl Neck Dress. The Jolee top was challenging because I used a very unstable jersey, whereas the Cowl Neck dress was very simple because I didn't have any neckbands or anything complicated … Continue reading An Agnes duo

First baby quilt

My first quilt

My next blog post is straying away slightly from the handmade wardrobe because I made my first quilt! An anouncement from my oldest and best friend that she was pregnant immediately made me think that I wanted to make a quilt for the new arrival. Having never quilted before I knew I needed to follow … Continue reading My first quilt

Ultimate Shift Dress

A last minute decision that I needed a new dress to wear out for my birthday was the driving factor behind this make. The Ultimate Shift Dress by Sew Over It is one that I have seen all over Instagram from a while and I figured it would be a quick make with it being such … Continue reading Ultimate Shift Dress
