Who remembers this sassy, off the shoulder 'bardot' style top from my blog last year? I wore it for filming today & it had me feeling all nostalgic about how far my little sewing blog has come in such a short time! It's the @simplicitynewlook 1613 pattern with a little tweak, search my blog at for more! Otherwise make sure you're subscribed to my YouTube channel through the link in my bio as there's new videos on the way soon! βœ‚οΈ

This vintage 1950s sun dress speaks to me! I love following vintage sellers on Instagram for sewing inspiration & @sweetbeefinds is one of my faves! 😍

One of the best things I can do for my own #mentalhealth is leaving the house & my sewing machine completely (no matter how much work there is to do) and getting some fresh air! Since joining the @nationaltrust in May, there's lots of adventures to be had! See my Instagram Stories today to see where I'm going to be exploring!
What's your fave National Trust place to visit? Especially in the Shropshire/Wales area. I'd love recommendations! πŸŒ²πŸ›€πŸŒ»

Day 23 of #VPJuly - Next! I've been pretty bad at keeping up with this Insta photo challenge. It's made me long for vintage sewing patterns, everyone's photos have been so tempting! But I do have a vintage project coming up next and it's my August @simplicitynewlook Stitch by Stitch video as their Vintage Ambassador! I'm sewing this gorgeous #1940s blouse. Have you tried this pattern? πŸ’

I'm making effort to try have Sundays away from work and my sewing machine. But there's never one too far away! Like my early 1950s Singer I inherited from my boyfriend's grandmother. Have a lovely day, sewists! πŸ’

In my latest video, I'm shopping my fabric stash for my latest summer makes. Have you shopped your stash for fabrics & patterns recently? It reminded me of some lovely pieces of fabric I'd forgotten about! Tap the link in my bio to head over to my channel βœ‚οΈπŸ‘—πŸ’•

SWIPE ⬅️ - I took a bunch of flatlays of my new @sewoveritlondon Elsie Dress, I thought I might as well share them all with you! I love the lining of this dress, I think it looks super professional & cant wait to make another. My full sewing pattern review of Elsie is live at NOW, along with all my outfit snaps! This stunning fabric is also from @sewoveritlondon and there's a link in my post straight to it. I hope you like it!

NEW video alert! In my latest video (link to my channel in my bio), rummage through my entire fabric stash with me as I design my next sewing projects. It's a bit of a random one, but after my pattern stash video, I thought you might like a peek at my fabric & upcoming makes too. I hope you enjoy it! Ft. @sewoveritlondon , @mccallpatternuk & @simplicitynewlook + fabrics from Birmingham Rag Market. βœ‚οΈπŸ‘—

YAY! So happy to finally share my @sewoveritlondon Elsie Dress! I was lucky enough to be a pattern tester and thoroughly enjoyed this 1950s style dress. My full sewing pattern review will be up on my blog this weekend, but I couldn't resist giving you a peek now! What do you think?
The Elsie Pattern is out now. Fabric also from @sewoveritlondon 🌷
