I’m so excited to be writing my first blog post for Sewalicious about one of my favourite patterns this year!
Nicki and Amy have designed this really easy T-shape kimono pattern that was just begging to be made in their gorgeous Japanese Red Poppies cotton lawn.
Wedding season is here! And whilst there’s nothing better than watching two people you love get hitched [or drinking champagne all day] finding an outfit that makes you feel like a million bucks and isn’t identical to another guest can be a bit of a pain in the bum!
The Rose Dress is a free pattern the lovely ladies of Sewalicious have designed themselves, it's a great addition to any summer wardrobe and can be made as a top, tunic or dress to suit your personal style. It's also super easy to sew together, looks great and did I mention - it's completely FREE?!
Today we’re going to try out a summer dress hack with a tried and true pattern – the Deer and Doe Plantain Shirt. If you haven’t sewn up this shirt before you can access it for free on the Deer and Doe website.
The beauty and versatility of this pattern and fabric combination really speaks for itself. Annabel chose this lovely blue chambray with aptly named ‘prancing ponies,’ and paired it with the Ikatee Marieke sleeveless playsuit with shoulder ruffles.
My blog post this time coincides with an Instagram sewing challenge that myself and @sarahcsewing have just launched called the Nellie Sewing Challenge.
Spring is coming! After months of hiding ourselves away in layers of sweat shirting and boiled wool it’s time to grab some lighter fabrics and explore some clothes that don’t require a layer of thermals underneath!
Being the mum of a tween girl, it isn’t an easy when it comes to choosing clothes. With a girl who has ever increasing opinions on EVERYTHING, we have frequently been at an impasse of what is ok to wear.
My very good friend and I were given two tickets for the Fashion Week Festival and Catwalk Show by my generous daughter Amy and her business partner Nicki.
