Seamwork Neenah Turtle Neck Dress

I’ve not used a Seamwork pattern before but I’m glad I chose the Neenah turtle neck dress as my first one as it was so quick and easy to make up! I made it in an evening and wore it to work the next day, where I received loads of compliments on it and it… Continue reading Seamwork Neenah Turtle Neck Dress

The Califaye Pocket/Moss Skirt Mash Up

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
