Silk Noil Eme Box Top

I was on the hunt for close-to-home silk noil fabric when a lovely instagrammer suggested taking a look at A + R Fabrics (who are based out of Australia). I’m always a sucker for a minimal white website, but since I’d recently purchased some black silk noil from Canada, I got in touch to see…… Continue reading Silk Noil Eme Box Top

Silk Noil Eme top hack

Recently the lovely Michelle from Matchpoint Fabric celebrated a birthday by having a sale and it was all the excuse I needed to order myself some of her silk noil fabric that I hadn’t been able to find closer to home! Although I’m pretty sure that I played a large part in her silk noil…… Continue reading Silk Noil Eme top hack

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

Marsala Linen Adeline

This Adeline Dress is made from lovely marsala linen from The Fabric Store. Nice fabric is generally a little on the expensive side (you get what you pay for), but the Adeline can be made from 2 metres of fabric. That’s pretty rare in plus size sewing. So rare it probably explains why there are…… Continue reading Marsala Linen Adeline

Adeline in Scribble Rayon

It was love at first sight with this scribble rayon fabric from The Fabric Store. I took it home not knowing that it would become an Adeline Dress. Fortunately I had enough fabric remaining that I could also make a Peppermint Magazine Peplum! I didn’t bother putting pockets in this dress, which always annoys me.…… Continue reading Adeline in Scribble Rayon

Ethel Designer Top

These Ethel Designer Top from StyleArc (which I purchased as a set) isn’t something that I wear all that often. I made the top well before I’d sewn any high-waisted pants, so it was a touch too short for me to enjoy wearing it with my jeans, and so it got pushed to the back…… Continue reading Ethel Designer Top

Ethel Designer Pants

These Ethel Designer Pant from StyleArc (which I purchased as a set) sat in my ‘almost finished’ sewing box for over a year, after I deemed them not very successful. After some unsuccessful purchases from them (back when they didn’t include finished garment measurements), I try to be quite savvy about picking patterns where it…… Continue reading Ethel Designer Pants

Pineapple Adeline Dress

This was my first StyleArcAdeline, in a lovely black linen with a not-quite-evenly-printed pineapple pattern in white. I was inspired to make this after seeing some gorgeous versions from Meg, and Lara of Thornberry (I also love this amazing version made by Lara for her mum). I managed some ok pattern matching on one side…… Continue reading Pineapple Adeline Dress

Lacey Dress from StyleArc

This Lacey Dress from StyleArc is lovely, but hard to find online. As you can imagine, typing ‘lacey dress’ gets you an awful lot of lace dresses and the hashtags are all a mess too. If you’re reading this StyleArc, hire me and I’ll fix your hashtags! This isn’t part of my normal colour scheme…… Continue reading Lacey Dress from StyleArc
