Jeune twin set

A little while back my friend Suz, the talented lady behind Sewpony, shared a secret with me. She said she was working on a pattern that she wanted to release as a surprise. She asked a few ladies to help her test the pattern. For a little while a few of us whispered in secrecy, sewed the pattern, shared feedback... Today is the day we stop whispering. Our little project is no longer a secret. Today Suz released her newest pattern, the Jeune twin set.

Patricia Rose dress

I am a risk taker! Who would have thought! Well, it is not that I don't take risks in life. I did move to the other side of the globe for example. However when it comes to the things I make for myself, I don't seem to explore too many different styles and cuts. Well, not with my last project!


I Am Cupidon

Autumn in Australia is all about layering. My wardrobe was lacking a lightweight sweater or a cardigan for when it just starts to cool down.


Pleated summer dress

This red dress is my last summer project. It is one of my favourite 'selfish' makes to date. However it almost wasn't made.

Catherine cardigan

Autumn is here. A season of long walks, crunchy leaves and comfy cardigans. OK it is only the second day of Autumn, and it doesn't even feel like Autumn yet, however I decided to be organised and made a Catherine cardigan for Miss L.

A couple of tees

I bet you have heard people referring to tee shirts and jeans as mums' uniform? Well, my mum uniform needed an update. While it is unlikely that you will see me sewing my own jeans in the near future, tee shirts are easy!

Fabulous and free

I am grateful to the designers who choose to share their patterns with us sewing addicts free of charge. The outfit I am showing in this post was created by using three free patterns. Try saying 'three free patterns' quickly! Fun hey?

Lacey dress from style arc

I have a secret hobby. I like to go 'window shopping' for patterns and fabric. Style Arc is currently one of my favourite sites to visit. They have so many patterns that I love. A few times my 'window shopping' resulted in a purchase. I recently posted about my versions of Style Arc's Courtney top. Today I would like to introduce you to another fab pattern - the Lacey dress.

Two tops more, one dress less

I am absolutely in love with the Courtney top pattern from Style Arc. In fact I love it so much I cut up my first Fringe dress to make a Courtney top! But before you condemn me for committing such an atrocity, please hear me out!

Family reunion dress in linen and liberty

Last year I made a Family Reunion dress for my little love to wear to her Aunt's wedding. This year I used this pattern again to make her a Christmas dress.
