Battle of the dungarees

Hi there! Hope all's well with you? It seems once again to have been some time since I blogged. I'd apologise for that, but I've recognised that this blog is a hobby just as much as sewing is and, actually, sometimes I just don't feel like writing. So today, I do feel like writing and...

Jumping for joy

OK, I admit, the title for this post is a total cliche! But honestly, I'm so chuffed with the make I want to show you today, I couldn't help myself. Vogue 9075 has been on my radar for quite some time now.  There are various glorious versions floating about on the internet now (here, here and... Continue Reading →

Landers great and small

Hi there! So I'm back from my holidays and feeling very relieved to have got home to some more sensible temperatures, after nearly dying of heat exhaustion in Italy.  I jest of course, but genuinely, I am not designed for daily temperatures over 35 degrees combined with high humidity!

There's been a continuing theme around here for some time of learning to properly fit trousers to my obviously slightly unusual shape.  This make was one I think of... Continue Reading →

And at least one directly... Continue Reading →

Closet Case Patterns do it again

Hi there! So once again it's been a bit quiet on the old blog.  There has been a fair amount of sewing going on (as you'd know if I'd kept up with the monthly round up posts) but I've been struggling with migraines again which has made coping with a screen rather painful to say...

Ice cream trousers of dreams!

Hello there! I hope you're having a good Sunday, preferably with some better weather than we've got in Leeds right now.  I'm kind of hanging in there; I've felt awful this weekend, think I'm fighting an ear infection but I've just felt totally wiped out. However, I had a deadline to get some photos taken... Continue Reading →
