New Year, Same Me! Sewing plans and another Simplicity 8092.
I'm 2 weeks late but better late than never, I guess, so Happy New Year! I am not one for lots of resolutions and plans. I believe that if you want to change something or start doing something, just do it. You don't need the arbitrariness of January 1st to ...

{embroidery} Not today!
I have something different to share today and I'm very excited about it: my first proper embroidery project. I did a bit of cross stitching when I was young and I have attempted hand embroidery in the past. But I've never finished anything other than a few ...

{Helen's Closet} Blackwood Cardigan
I first tried the  Blackwood Cardigan  at the end of last year. I made 2 back to back and I wear them ALL. THE TIME. I love them. They're smart but super comfortable and I need one in every colour. However, my sewing hiatus happened and plans to make more w...

{Tilly and the Buttons} Cleo dungarees
I'm not one to follow trends. I don't pay attention to them and I am blissfully unaware of what is being sold in the shops from one season to the next. I have nothing against them, it's just not something I care about. I've always opted for classic shapes a...

{Simplicity} S8092 - wide leg trousers of dreams
I love a wide leg trouser. For quite a few months now I've been looking for the perfect pattern to bring to life the perfect trousers I dreamed up. I've bought a few and tried the Landers  and Butterick 6183, not once but twice . Although I like those, they...

{True Bias} Lander Pants and B6175
A couple of months ago I decided I was missing some basic, plain trousers in my wardrobe. I wanted something versatile that I could dress up or down, depending on the occasion. A little bit like jeans but not as involved. So when I came across the  True Bia...
