Hello everyone! This month’s project is a nice, easy one and it’s perfect for using up fabric leftovers! I was so pleased that I managed to get the Stylish Shell Top out of my fabric remains!
The fabric is a reversible fabric that was bought at Lucky Fashions in Dewsbury. I did buy it with a plan, which was fulfilled (read about it in this post), but I still had a fair chunk left over. This was over two years ago now and it feels good to get rid of it from my stash for good! Continue reading
A year ago today (12th November 2016) I went on a Simple Sew bloggers meet up. The following blog post has been in draft form for nearly that long but for some reason, which I forget, I never published it!

Not to mention the hilarious, professional photographs that were taken! Continue reading

Ooops, I’m a bit late in writing this one! On Monday (22nd – I told you I was late) I wore my Charlotte skirt from By Hand London. I did shorten this one significantly because I couldn’t be bothered to deal with the split at the back! You can read about mine 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). I love this skirt but it’s definitely more suited to winter than spring. Sorry about the rubbish selfie but that’s what Me Made May is all about isn’t it? Continue reading
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
