The One Where I Learned a Lot

Howdy ho Sewists!

I finally got some pictures of my first successful 2019 Make Nine projects (the story of the failures is for another day) so thought it was time I shared the journey.

This is the tale of making the New Look 6567 and I’ll give you a heads up, it is going to be a long post as it was quite a trip. However, as the title says, I learnt a lot so who knows maybe you will too? I think this will be especially helpful for those petite sewists or anyone who has had trouble with gaping necklines/narrow shoulders out there.

The One with the Bits and Pieces

Happy Autumn guys and girls!

It finally showed up here in Asheville and while I will always try to hold on to those long hot summer days (I was born on the wrong continent for sure) I’m trying my best not to be too sad they’re over. Thinking about my Autumn/Winter sewing projects is helping that.

This post is a bit of a hodgepodge, just a chance for me to tell you all what I’ve been up to and an excuse for me to get things straight in my head if I’m being honest. It’ll be a quick one I promise. Go on, have a read “The One with the Bits and Pieces”

The One With That Fabric #sewbackthen

Hey there folks,

I’m attempting to continue with my #sewbackthen series as there’s not much sewing in my life currently – hopefully that will change shortly – but wanted to stay on the blogging train.

For now,  my tale is of my first try of my third indie pattern company By Hand London. I’d had success with Tilly and the Buttons and Sew Over It so I had no worries about trying a new indie company.

As summer is coming to a close (although Asheville doesn’t seem to have got that memo yet), I thought I’d share my favourite summer dress make with you.
