The ready-in-under-an-hour skirt! - Self Assembly Required

In my last fabric haul from Stoff & Stil I picked up a piece of pleated fabric. This is the kind of stuff that’s been chemically treated to have the pleats permanently in place. These pleats run horizontally – so selvedge to selvedge – you can find fabric like this with different depths of pleats […]

On making my own version of a Ganni dress! - Self Assembly Required

I love trying to make my own version of dresses I’ve seen on the runway or the high street – it’s a huge high to say I can totally make that and then you do it! 😂 I’ve done it a few times before (check out some of them here, here and here) but this […]

A spotted Eva maxi dress hack - Self Assembly Required

I’m a bit of an impulse purchaser of online fabric and it definitely can be a problem! I always end up with fabric I don’t quite know what to do with! (Though partly that’s to do with the fact the fabric that turns up on my doorstep isn’t quite what I expected…) I had this […]

The Falbala blouse // Wear Lemonade - Self Assembly Required

A couple of years ago I splurged on a Wear Lemonade Pattern subscription. It used to be called the “Netflix of sewing” though it’s been rebranding to the “Lemonade Pattern Corner” and allows you to download as many of their sewing patterns as you want! There’s a minimum term of 3 months (at €7,90/month) but […]

A Zadie jumpsuit with a little sleeve frill - Self Assembly Required

I couldn’t believe I’d only made one Paper Theory Zadie jumpsuit so far. It’s a pattern I loved and knew worked well for my body and yet I’d never gotten round to making anymore! Well since I now had all this free time on my hands I thought it was time to rectify that! I’d […]

A striped jersey Cassiopée dress! - Self Assembly Required

I decided to pull out an old pattern for this make – the I Am Patterns Cassiopée dress! This one made the rounds a couple of years ago (you can see my original one here!) when everyone seemed to be making it! It’s a loose fit raglan sleeved dress with a gathered skirt – super […]

A red Shelby with a sleeve hack // True Bias - Self Assembly Required

I feel like I’ve been really good at reusing patterns this year. I often find I’m so into the “next new thing” I forget about patterns that I like! (My exceptions to this are the Fibre Mood Mira and the By Hand London Hannah, both of which sit in the forefront of my mind far […]
