Hello everyone! I’m back again with another Simple Sew make. This time I’d thought I’d try something different with the Pussy Bow Blouse (and dress!). I originally got this pattern as a freebie pattern from Love Sewing Magazine but if you missed out it’s now available on the Simple Sew website. Continue reading
My son Bryn has his annual cub scout holiday camp this weekend and they are having a fancy dress party on Saturday night. The theme for the fancy dress is ‘pirates’ but my son wants to go as Long John Silver’s parrot, Captain Flint (I had to Google the name).
It was quite a luxury to have a little bit of time to think and plan my strategy, but still I wanted it to be a quick and easy make. Continue reading
I’m very excited to be talking to you about my latest internet challenge. I’ve been following Siân from Kittenish Behaviour on YouTube for some time. I really love her style and wish I was brave enough to wear what she wears! When she said she was going to host an internet challenge my ears pricked up. She came up with the brilliant idea of the #KBPattern Swap. You can hear all about it here: Continue reading
Things are starting to get tricky now but I’m just about managing to keep up with Me Made May. On Monday I wore my Delphine skirt from Love at First Stitch (read about it here).

Last week I promised myself that I was going to incorporate more dresses into my days and I just about managed it. I don’t know why but I always feel overdressed when I wear a dress so I usually stick to separates. Sometimes it’s good to come out of your comfort zone.
I started off with my Moneta dress which I made for last year’s Little Red Dress Project. I’m not 100% convinced about it – that gathered waistline makes me feel enormous! But it is comfortable. You can read about it here. Continue reading
If you’re in the UK you must have heard about the dressmakers ball. When this was first announced I looked into getting a ticket to go. And then my husband ruined everything by pointing out that it’s at 7.00pm on a Friday night in Leicester which is a bugger to get to on the train from Scarborough. Even if I left work the instant I finished I would be very late and stressed. I’ve decided to be jealous of everyone who is going and just hope that they do it again next year (on a Saturday please so us workers from far away can go!). Continue reading
