I've had a FANTASTIC time shopping for ALL the fabric today! πŸ› Great to meet the very glamorous @lisacomfort at the Sew Over It party this evening - thanks for such a warm welcome! πŸ’•

I have planned an EPIC day of (unsupervised 😳) fabric shopping tomorrow, including my first ever trip to @sewoveritlondon for their summer party! I'm so excited! πŸ› Who else is going?

How adorable are these pattern weights from @kiddylizzy?! πŸ©πŸ’–πŸ© Perfect for cutting out some acacia knickers in leftover sloth jersey! βœ‚οΈ

I'm always keen to learn new skills and my next challenge is to make a garment with buttons! βœ‚οΈ My @sewoveritlondon Lottie dress is coming together nicely in this lovely fabric from @seasaltcornwall βœ‚οΈ

When you have hand-quilting to do, but it's 28Β°C! πŸ˜€πŸŒ‘β˜€οΈ #heatwave #quilting #paddlingpool

Had such a great time at the Big Summer Stitch Up at @sewisfaction yesterday! πŸ’• I stroked lots of fabric, swapped some patterns, screen printed my own tote bag and met lots of lovely stitchers! πŸ’•

We've just had the most beautiful sunset picnic in the lavender fields! πŸ’œ I wore my @tillybuttons Stevie dress, which I absolutely adore πŸ’œ

I πŸ’› my Colibri dungarees! I used some lightweight denim from @hometown_in_rochester and made the ties and facings from leftover Lady McElroy cotton lawn πŸ’• Hammering the eyelets in was great fun! πŸ”¨ Swipe to see some detail πŸ‘‰πŸΌ

Double finish tonight! πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Colibri dungarees ready for their first outing tomorrow and Stevie dress ready for the @sewisfaction Big Summer Stitch Up on Saturday! πŸ’• I have done SO MUCH top-stitching this week! βœ‚οΈ

I've really been enjoying sewing my @iam_patterns Colibri dungarees this week πŸ’› I absolutely love the yellow top-stitching and facings! Just waiting for some eyelets to arrive to finish them off πŸ’•

I finished my #CharlieCaftan! πŸŒΈπŸ’›πŸŒΊ I was paid so many compliments by all the lovely hens today πŸ’•πŸ“ πŸ’• Please excuse the slightly sweaty photo πŸ™ˆ

It's days like today I love having my sewing room in the cellar - it's so cool down here! ❄ A Magnum is still necessary though, obviously 🍦Just sewing the side seams on my Charlie Caftan 🌸 #ithaspockets #sewhayleyjane
