It’s taken a while to get this post done because I haven’t been able to get photos of Alex wearing the first thing I made this month. I had a week off in November and it meant I got some really good sewing in, and I’ve been keen to blog about it. So now it’s … More November 2018.
September (and October) are proving busy months at work, which severely impacts the amount of downtime I get at my sewing machines – WAH! I’ve also had a lot of performing on recently, and learning repertoire takes longer as my brain ages. But I did get a few things made in September, and they were … More September 2018.
I bought the True Bias Lander Pants pattern the week it came out. For a person who lives in trousers, and loves making them, I am woefully short on pants patterns. I do have plans to remedy this, I have my eye on the Victory Patterns Esme Pants, and the Closet Case Files Sasha. However, … More I like wide pants and I cannot lie.

So that’s where I will start, by revisiting my last planning post. Updates: The Blanche Dress – completed. Butterick 3551 – … More You make me feel like Spring has sprung.
So after the last Papercut Pattern debacle, I am pleased to announce that we have forgiven and forgotten and that my new PP garment, the Guise Pant, and myself have registered for wedding gifts at Bed, Bath & Beyond. I really, really love these pants because, well, #pants and the cut, and the absolutely beautiful, … More Pants pants pants.
My first week of MMM16 is done. The photos are, well, a record if nothing else. It’s also good to do an inventory of the MM wardrobe. What I know so far: I wear a LOT of seperates My mullet top needs cuffs to be added My blue pants need to be taken in I … More MMM16 week 1 roundup
I had this idea that I wanted to post every week in 2016, with the idea being that it would ensure that creativity features in my life regularly. And I’ve done well until April. However, the plan should not rule the purpose so I’m being kind to myself at the moment and will post when … More Purpose vs Plan
Dressing as fruit is a thing guys. I will take guesses in the comments as to what fruit I am, and points if you can point out three identifying markers. I made this sleeveless blouse / shirt last year but never got around to taking photos and talking about it. It’s a total stash buster … More Dressing as a piece of fruit.
