Kitchen Curtain
Most people would find it rather insulting to be told their dress looks like a kitchen curtain.  Me? Not so much. That's why I bought this dress.  I really like happy floral fabrics!  Quite unlike me, I bought this dress instead of making it. I saw some ado...

Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside
I turned my back for a second, and summer is gone! It won't stop me from wearing my pretty summer dresses though, I haven't even had my summer holiday yet! Who needs to be dressed appropriately anyway! This is not a dress I made, it was a vintage purchase t...

Not a Christmas Jumper
As a maker of garments, I like to make things for specific occasions. It's nice to have that deadline in mind in order to get things finished, otherwise I end up with multiple projects on the go, in various stages of completion (and/or disarray). So when I ...

#twirlywintercoatcollab with Butterick 5824
It was seriously time that I made myself a proper winter coat!  The vintage one I have had for a while now, is so riddled with holes in the lining, that at this point, there are more holes than there is lining. (not one word of a lie!) I realise that re-lin...

Pink to make the boys Wink ;-)
Happy New Year dear readers! For my first post of the year, I wanted to come in with style, and apparently fashionably late too, as the new year began a good week ago! I have something special for you today, as an evening gown is most unusual outerwear for ...
