The Kalle shirt from Closet Case Patterns burst onto the sewing scene a while back, and it isn’t going anywhere. Everyone who makes it loves it, and from looking at my most-worn shop-bought clothes, the shirtdress was up there among my favourites, so I knew the Kalle was one for me.
Since I started sewing this pattern has been on my mind. It caught my eye very early on. I love the femininity and boldness of it, it’s a real statement piece
My wardrobe is lacking in separates and essentials, so I wanted to create a wardrobe staple for my latest blog make for Sewalicious
I really like wearing skirts at this time of year. You can look a little bit dressed up and still keep warm at the same time. Makes a great change to wearing the same old jeans during the winter!
I've been a fan of the stunning vintage patterns at Decades of Style for a long time now. The patterns range from reproductions of originals from the 1920's to the 1950's...
Happy New Year, everyone! Although many see January as a bit of a grim month, I love the start of the year and the promise it holds
For my first blog post for Sewalicious I had to have a serious think about what I would make. There were cottons to make lovely frocks, jerseys for a cardigan and wool for a sweet 1930's jacket I had in mind.
Well this must be the comfiest dress I've ever made! For my Autumn Sewalicious blog I decided to make the Sew Over It Heather dress in this stunning pinky floral scuba called Secret Garden. I thought it would be the perfect combination of comfort and style to see me through some chilly evenings to come!
The runways and high street have been bombarded with the ruffle trend for some time now; the addition of a humble strip of gathered or pleated fabric gives shirts and dresses an injection of drama that’s nothing short of fabulous.
I sat on the train heading to London filled with anticipation and excitement. I was heading to The Handmade Fair at Hampton Court and I knew I’d be meeting the Sewalicious ladies – Amy and Nicki.
