Colette Peony- If this post had a strapline it would be “Should have made a toile”
A Colette Laurel in Liberty Tana Lawn and my first ever dress.
Love this shift dress from Hush with a neoprene front and cotton jersey back. Definitely a future make!
Papercut Patterns Rigel Bomber in a very bright, silky floral print and lined in grey.
Grainline Studio Alder Shirt Dress with sleeves added from the Archer Button Up Shirt. Love this fabric- A Ghastlie End from Alexander Henry.
The Dress Shirt from Merchant and Mills in Liberty cord. Love the dress. The pattern needed a lot of adjustment to get the right fit though.
I love the possibilities opened up by free-motion embroidery and used it to tell the ‘Story of me’ in this quilt…or maybe blanket would be a better description.
A simple hand tied, high loft quilt made from beautiful bright Ikea fabrics.
‘Armoured Heart’- a charcoal and ink drawing inspired by the John Donne poem ‘The Triple Fool’ and a conversation with a friend.
The Sewaholic Cordova Jacket- my very tailored version of this lovely double peplum jacket pattern in a wool mix with a Kokka cotton lining.
Hand block-printed scarves on heavy silk twill- love these big, bright squares of silk to wear. Inspired by Hermes J’aime mon Carre design.
Zinnia skirt by Colette made in goldfish orange cotton lawn and hand-printed with a flock of birds around the bottom. My very first sewing project, very imperfect but loved and worn often.
Papercut Patterns Undercover Hood in a beautiful bicycle knit fabric with powermesh bands. An easy and quick sew with great instructions.
Liberty crepe de chine and cotton circle scarf- a very quick sew.
