hello! here is my datura blouse, in the best fabric everrrrr. for my birthday i had a voucher for guthrie and ghani. i knew i wanted some liberty fabric but hadn’t really had time to go over and have a proper mooch around. then lauren posted a picture of the new season liberty stuff, and i spied KEVIN. yep, that is genuinely the name of this fabric!
hey everyone! i actually have a real garment post to share with you after like a month of not finishing anything! my sewing machine has been out of action because it keeps shredding the top thread. i’m not sure why. after some help on instagram, it’s been suggested there might be a problem with the bobbin. i’ve made sure a million times that everything is
hi everyone! i’ve been waiting to blog about some bunting that i made for a wedding until i had some pictures of the bunting “in action”. my cousin’s best friend got married last thursday, and i was asked to make the bunting for the decorations. oh the pressure! my cousin bought lots of half metres of different peaches and mint greens with different patterns from ebay. they
hello internet! it was my birthday two days ago (yay! i’m now the ripe old age of 23) and i got some money from various aunties, uncles and family friends, so i thought it called for some sewing shopping. i went to my favourite sneaky hidden shop, and picked up a couple of things. a pink chalk wheel, some thread to make my sew over it 1940’s tea

hey internet. just a quick one today, because i’ve only done a little bit of sewing. james ordered a couple of tshirts from america (probably a year ago now) and when they arrived they were too big. when tshirts with sleeves are too big, it’s not cool. however, when the tshirts have their arms removed, they become oversized vests, and apparently that is cool, and that is where me and
hi everyone! after my success of the first moneta i made the other day, i thought i would make another one! it’s the first pattern i’ve done that with so far. probably because it’s so quick to make! this time i chose a lighter knit fabric from ebay. the quality isn’t wonderful, but what did i expect for 3 metres for £11 eh. my thread was cheap too.
on friday, i went to a blouse making day at guthrie and ghani, the lovely sewing shop ran by lauren from series one of the sewing bee. it’s in moseley which is the cutest area, and the shop is so lovely. the workshop area is a really bright spacious place. there were 6 of us on the course, and the small number of people meant lauren was on hand whenever
bonjour everyone! i’ve been quite for a couple of weeks, my hayfever is killing me and after 8 hours struggling at work i just don’t feel like doing much when i get home. however, after seeing all the pretty moneta dresses popping up every where, i needed to make one for myself. here it is! i got the fabric from calico laine, i
