Today I am reviewing the Freya Cowl Neck Dress from the book Stretch! by Tilly Walnes.
Pattern review of the Cleo Dress pattern along with how I made the pattern from two pairs of jeans.
Here is my sewing pattern review of Wendy Ward's Kinder Cardigan, available as a PDF pattern or part of A Beginner's Guide to Sewing with Knitted Fabrics.
I realised the other day that I never reviewed the Gable top pattern. Better late than never! Also, it means that I have lots of experience in wearing it!

Difficulty This is a really simple top to make consisting of only 4 pieces of fabric. The main challenge for me was the fabric I chose as it was very stretchy. You may wish to take extra care on…
Today I’m sharing a pattern review of one of my #2018makenine projects! I added it to my make nine list as it’s something I began in 2017 and then abandoned when I got confused with it. However, I am so glad I persevered as it wasn’t so bad after all and it certainly stands out in my wardrobe.
I was busy last month making birthday gifts and playing around with video making with my camera last month. Here’s one of the projects I made. I’ve had the fabric for this make for a while as I wanted to make a project bag for knitting or crocheting for my sister for Christmas but never managed to make it. It’s a pattern which I’ve had lying around for quite a while too. (more…)
Once again, I found myself blundering out of another month without a completed project for #sewmystyle.

I ended up washing it while I cut out pieces for another project on my list, and then with other deadlines appearing, April came and went! (more…)
