I’m sorry but this blog post may have an aura of smugness about it because I absolutely love the finished article! If you follow me on Instagram at all you may be aware that I’ve been busy refashioning a leather jacket. I was quite excited about the project so I uploaded quite a lot of posts, so apologies if you’ve seen all this before.
My garment was specifically made for Continue reading
Hello again! Here is a quick round-up of what I’ve been wearing this week…
Sunday 8th May
It was the hottest day we’ve had so far so I wore this unblogged little top, the pattern for which came from the Great British Sewing Bee third book. Continue reading
Hello everyone. This is my second make of 2016 – A By Hand London cropped Victoria Blazer! Go me! My first make was a pair of cushions but I won’t bore you with them. I have since made some shortie PJs for the husband and I’ve started a new project so I’ve been pretty prolific for a weekend sewer.

Success! I’m so happy I completed Me Made May. I’m also quite pleased that it’s over and done with!

Obviously it’s not been me taking them though! Here’s how I’ve done this week: Continue reading
We’re just about getting into the swing of our school holidays now and today we had some glorious weather. We went on a huge family walk and I had to carry my coat! Almost unheard of in Scarborough! When we got back home I just about had enough energy to complete a mini project I’ve been working on for Bethan. Continue reading
Last weekend a friend and I went on a cheeky mini break to Amsterdam. Cheeky because it fitted into a normal weekend for me and I didn’t need to go in the school holidays. I don’t work Mondays so I have a slightly longer weekend than most people! As part of my preparations I had to make something, for no other reason than to take photos of it in Amsterdam for this blog! The stupid thing is it was too cold so I hardly took any photos of my skirt as it was covered with my warm coat!
