Sewing Family Jammies, for mum and me!

Sew Family Jammies, hosted by Sew Altered Style is a Christmas blog tour! Keep up with the blog tour and the fun jammies being sewn on Instagram here.

Zadie Jumpsuit in Marsala Linen

I’ve been planning my second Zadie Jumpsuit from Paper Theory since before I finished my testing toile version. This project has sat next to my sewing table for months- it was cut out and ready to sew, since the week that the fabric arrived by post. Since the weather has started to warm up, it…… Continue reading Zadie Jumpsuit in Marsala Linen

Stylearc Eme Dress in Tencel

Stylearc’s Eme Dress is touted as the roundneck sister dress to their popular Adeline Dress (which I’ve made so many versions of)! Stylearc sent me a copy of the Eme multi-size printed pattern, but quite ironically I thought I’d sew a straight size 22 and I don’t think I’ll bother grading for my (inevitable) next…… Continue reading Stylearc Eme Dress in Tencel

Cashmerette Montrose: Picnic Edition

I’m amassing a collection of hacked Cashmerette Montrose Tops for workwear since I can now easily cut-out and sew one of these in about half a day. I’ve added neckline facings, which cuts down enormously on the time (I find bias binding to be a huge bummer). This Cotton Herringbone from The Fabric Store was…… Continue reading Cashmerette Montrose: Picnic Edition

All Well Bucket Bag & Pear Pouch Hacked

I’ve been working on sewing up two almost identical Mini All Well Bucket Bags for some cute young relatives that we’ll call French nieces for the sake of ease. I used these adorable ‘Ta-Da’ labels from Kylie and the Machine because I hope those will span the language barrier and improvised a way to line…… Continue reading All Well Bucket Bag & Pear Pouch Hacked

Toile of Harrison Shirt from Cashmerette

I started this Cashmerette Harrison Shirt, my first shirt, with the intention of making a ‘wearable toile’ but have settled for a toile that included plenty of ‘firsts’ for me! Usually when making Cashmerette Patterns, I’m able to pick my cup size, select my bust measurement and then grade out a size or two where…… Continue reading Toile of Harrison Shirt from Cashmerette

Fremantle Pants from Elbe

In less than 4 hours this afternoon I cut out and sewed a new pair of Elbe Textile’s Fremantle Pants. Lauren has increased her original size range to 61.5″ hip (67.5″ finished measurements), which is great! In this version I left off the patch pockets at the rear and also “drafted” a slightly larger pocket…… Continue reading Fremantle Pants from Elbe

Zadie Jumpsuit from PaperTheory

I’ve loved Paper Theory’s patterns for ages- they’re exactly the kind of style that I wish I could buy in stores for myself (so I wouldn’t need to sew). When she announced that she was extending the sizes for her Zadie Jumpsuit, I was all over that like a rash. I actually reviewed this jumpsuit…… Continue reading Zadie Jumpsuit from PaperTheory
