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.

This Cleo dress from Tilly and the buttons, was sewn in half-hour spurts at the beginning of January. Because the Cleo dress is so easy I soon had it sewn up despite the time constraints.
As you can see I went for a purple corduroy that I bought at the Continue reading
I’m getting a little behind with my blogging at the moment. I’m about to show you what I entered for the ‘one pattern, two ways‘ challenge that formed the second week of Indie Pattern Month over at the Monthly Stitch.
The idea is to take one pattern and make it twice! You could either make two identical garments or you could make different variations. The garments must have come from an indie pattern Continue reading
