Califaye Collection Basics Pocket Skirt

I’m going to be bluntly honest – I’d never heard of Califaye Collection before the Sew My Style project and I can’t say I was overly pleased with my finished skirt or the process to make it. I found the instructions to be more complicated than they needed to be for such a simple skirt;… Continue reading Califaye Collection Basics Pocket Skirt

Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Tops

I have absolutely no idea why I haven’t made this pattern sooner! I’ve had it sat on my shelf for ages and I’ve also had some fabric to use for ages too. When I saw the heart jersey fabric that Rachel Wain bought from Barry’s in Birmingham which she posted on Twitter, I just had… Continue reading Tilly and the Buttons Agnes Tops

The Named Clothing Saunio Cardigan

The Saunio cardigan is number 2 on the Sew My Style project line up and the first Named Clothing pattern I’ve ever used. I can’t say I’m very impressed with the pattern to be honest. The fabric suggestions are incredibly vague so I decided to use a light weight, polyester voile so that it would… Continue reading The Named Clothing Saunio Cardigan

Tilly and the Buttons Breton Stripe Bettine Dress

Early in January, I had a bit of a clear out, chucked out donated loads of clothes that I haven’t worn for ages to my local charity collection bin. I was BRUTAL and included some handmade items too. In doing this, I got rid of the bird cotton Bettine and the blue chambray Bettine. In… Continue reading Tilly and the Buttons Breton Stripe Bettine Dress

The So Over It Erin Skirt

It was Lisa's denim Erin skirt that caught my eye, I thought it was really versatile - totally my kind of garment - so I absolutely had to buy the ebook, My Capsule Wardrobe City Break. I love the details on this skirt - the pockets, the double topstitching on the pockets and the button stands,… Continue reading The So Over It Erin Skirt

Tilly and the Buttons Coco Jumper Two

As we're getting to colder weather here in the UK, jumpers are definitely on the sewing agenda and I had a good amount of fabric left over after making my latest Burda jumper. It just so happened that Sewn were having a sewing afternoon at the shop as well. I wasn't able to go to the last one… Continue reading Tilly and the Buttons Coco Jumper Two

Tilly and the Buttons Coco Jumper

A few weeks ago I attended the Sew Brizzle meet up and picked up some Ponte Roma in the fabric swap. I've never used this type of jersey before and boy, does my overlocker dislike it! It's slightly thicker than t-shirt jersey but not as thick as the organic jersey I used for my second Walkley dress. It's also… Continue reading Tilly and the Buttons Coco Jumper
