{Lisette for Butterick} B6183 - baggy trousers!
Haha! That's right, I made me some baggy trousers! And I love them. I don't even know how I came across this pattern but I'm very glad I did. The trousers are fab and I think the top looks really cute, too. The trousers have a culottes option as well. I've ...

{McCall's} 7533 floral sheath dress
I've now started to work on my winter wardrobe. I don't have many dresses I can wear with thick tights and boots. So far, my winter style has always been jeans and a jumper. But I want to have some stuff handy for when I want to look a little less scruffy.....

Hell, yeah, I made me some jeans! I had a different post planned for today but, you know... I made jeans so I'm gonna talk about jeans. *Warning*: there are some shots of my bum. Also, I wear underwear. Get over it. In all my years on this planet, I can o...

Today I have two pieces to share - although one of them you'll be sick of seeing very soon. I think it is due to make an appearance on the next 2 posts as well as this one... Fans of novelty watermelon prints will be pleased. That's all I'm saying. Anyway, ...

{McCall's} M6885 Shirtdress
Now that I proved to myself that I can sew a decent collar, it looks like I've developed a shirtdress addiction. Which this time around is being fuelled by  McCall's M6885 . I'm so glad I managed to look past the hideousness that is the pattern envelope bec...

{sewing} The Copenhagen Dress
When I went to Copenhagen last June I decided I needed a new dress to take with me. The problem was that this decision came late one night, about 5 days before I was due to go. I should also mention that, at the time, I hadn't yet finished a top I was worki...
