The Archer Shirt

I’m new to sewing from PDF patterns, but thought I’d give one a go when I saw all the amazing Archer shirts by Grainline Studio on Instagram. (look for the hashtag #archerappreciation if you want to see them all). It turns out I was jumping in at the deep end a bit, as this particular […]

Blue february

This is the Kelly Skirt by Megan Nielsen. It says it’s a pattern for beginners and I kinda fancied something simple after making two fiddly coats, in order to get my sewing mojo back. I used a light blue pin cord that I found in Fabworks. They had a few different colours, including a nice […]

The copycat jumper dress

I made this jumper dress after first seeing it on my friend Sarah. She let me borrow her dress (shop bought, from Cos) which I traced a pattern from and remade. The fabric is from The Shuttle in Shipley. I’m not entirely sure what the fabric is – I’m not even 100% sure it’s not […]
