Sewing lingerie

Sewing your own lingerie seems to be a big thing at the moment, with lots of sewers making their own bras particularly. I’ve got to say, I didn’t have any interest in seeing my own undies, but then when the

London Calling…

I’ve been dying to show you all this – my first dress! I know I’ve been sewing for a while now, and I’ve made a few things for myself that I love to wear, but I’ve always felt a bit

Merry Christmas!

I’m officially breaking up for the holidays today, although sadly there’ll be no Christmas party or swapping of secret Santas or anything. I do love being self-employed, but there are definitely a few things I miss about my previous life.

Musical Instrument Skirt

Just another quick make to share today. I’ve made another super-fast elasticated waist skirt! Yeah, I know it’s not the most exciting thing in the world, but at least they’re fast additions to my handmade wardrobe! So I bought this

The Handmade Fair

Yesterday I went to Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace with my lovely friend Sally. We booked the tickets an absolute lifetime ago (ok ¬†April, but it seems like forever) so we’ve been looking forward to it for
