DIY WIGGLE DRESS IN EMBOSSED SCUBA | BY HAND LONDON GEORGIA DRESS

Happy holidays, sewosphere! A bit after the fact, but I hope you had the loveliest time, got the best pressies and generally merrily indulged in great food, drink and laziness. I myself just emerged from food coma after 3 days of eating, watching just about every cartoon under the sun…

Queue-jumping sparkly jumpsuit

Hello sewosphere, feeling Christmasy? I have been accused several times this week of being the Grinch – my husband even suggested I use some of the green paint from my Wicked Halloween costume to fit the part better :). So this is definitely not going to be in the spirit,…

DIY SCUBA SHORTS | MCCALLS 6083

I must confess, I am still clearly in the scuba-obsessed phase, so here we have a new creation using this amazing fabric. Although totally weather inappropriate, and believe me, I absolutely felt that during the photo shoot earlier today, I love them!

DIY SCUBA CULOTTES | VOGUE 9075

DIY SATIN JUMPSUIT | SIMPLICITY 2401

Thank you all so much for your comments on my previous post. I took all your advice and chilled out from my online sewcial life for a while and also spent my time sewing rather than reading about sewing. Or blogging for that matter. But there was only so much…

Ahoy, sewing girls and boys! Today’s post is one helluva maxi irony! I’ve made a summer maxi dress just in time for the weather to turn rainy again here in London! And I’m taking pictures in the one half an hour when the rain stopped, goody! On the plus side,…

A sustainable wedding dress odyssey (Part 1)

Heya boys and girls, just a quick, cheeky mid-week post to tell you about something that’s making me really excited at the moment! You might have heard about me getting married in October in the Caribbean and that I’m mad enough to make my own wedding dress. Daunting, I know, but…

DIY BLACK AND WHITE A-LINE DRESS | MCCALLS 6465

What’s new and exciting, boys and girls? I do wonder how many of us got near a sewing machine this week (warmest day in the UK in a very long time). I am one to ditch a summer day no matter how nice the weather if I have a project…
