This week at the sewing table, I’m hoping my lemon dress of dreams will come to life! Fabric from @spoonflower 🍋✂️

I’m not a very organized person/mom. I can admit it. When I read “Wear Yellow” on the pre-school calendar last night at 10pm I was glad I was at least a disorganized mom who sews.
This is the free #hjracerbackdress by @heyjunehandmade
Fabric is @cottonandsteel .

Edinburgh hasn't quite been at London levels of sunshine so I'm still trying to add more cosy to my life. My new #driftlesscardigan has been serving me very well over the weekend, keeping me snuggly on new city explorations and trips out to favourite local cafes.
Finished on Friday night (that handsewing 😱) and worn for the entire weekend, I think I've finally found the cardi pattern I've been searching for since December when my last RTW one bit the dust.
I made it out of a lovely grey marl ponte di roma bought AGES ago, waiting patiently in my stash for a project to come rumbling along. I decided on the super fun split hem and graded out to a bigger sized to accommodate my big ole hips. The pockets are wonderful and I love all the little details that elevate it from an in-the-house-cardigan to something I'm proud to wear.

If you like that loo so much, why don’t you marry it? 🤦‍♀️
@sewoveritlondon #pennydress - straight size 18, lengthened the bodice 5cm and, thanks to remaining fabric geometry, had to take 5cm length and some fullness from the skirt. It’s still extremely full though. I love the blousiness of the top and, though I’m nervous with floral prints, I love this drapey viscose blend so much. The printed pdf instructions were clear but the illustrations are illegible in black and white #sewcialists #memadeveryday #irelandsews #dublinsews #dressmaking #imakemyownclothes #alittlelawnparty #curvysewing #sewqueer

Hello yellow 💛 don’t mind me I’m just rinsing more photos from the weekend. Still in love with my @ninaleelondon #bloomsburyblouse and @tillybuttons #sewingcleo combo, although it would be weird if I wasn’t as I only wore it 2 days ago and I’m not that fickle #alittlelawnparty @thebrightblooms @handmadebyditsytulip

Weekend makes! Red and white #sewingfrankie top and stripey #megannielsenpatterns knickers.
Next project is a black and white spotty #seamworkyork which is cut out and ready to go.

Flicking ma hair like I just don’t care 🤷🏻‍♀️ New blog post is UP. I hereby present my #alittlelawnparty entry, a @ninaleelondon #bloomsburyblouse made in white swiss dot from the Goldhawk Road. I LOVE IT 😍 I’m wearing it with my @tillybuttons #sewingcleo and it’s a match made in heaven if I do say so myself. Thanks to @handmadebyditsytulip and @thebrightblooms for organising ☀️🌻💛 Link in biooooooo

Wore my newest make to the zoo today to celebrate my youngest turning three!
These are slightly modified @namedclothing #ninniculottes in the most amazing pleased satin fabric from @minervacrafts that I’ll be reviewing on their blog soon! Look at that colour! 😍

Summer sewing is on! I finally got round to trying the very popular @christinehaynes ‘Emery' dress pattern for the @minervacrafts Blogger Network. I opted for a classic mini gingham cotton for my first try, with hopes to make this simple, retro pattern again soon!

I work in construction, so casual button-ups are my week day uniform. Wearing this @grainlinestudio #archershirt of fishes makes the grind feel a little more whimsical and fun.

I had a serger knife mishap on the right side seam, so placed a fish swimming cross-stream to cover up the hole. Love it when mistakes turn into awesome little details like that! Swipe through to see

My new favorite button-up for the sunnier days, a modified #kalleshirtdress. I usually avoid metallics, but love the silver birds on this super breezy #naniiro lawn I got a while back from @missmatatabifabric (right when #beauyinyang became available, bc I couldn't bear to wait a few months to get it in the states).
.
Sized down, and opted for a more traditional hem with shallow curves. Also took a couple inches out of the center back (halved the pleat width) since I felt like I was drowning in my first kalle. Happy with the changes, and already on to my second!

I'm not usually a fan of animal prints for myself (though the 13-year-old-me who covered everything in leopard print faux fur and rainbow glitter would be disappointed in that fact). But this leopard print practically yelled at from the shelf and I knew it simply had to become a 70's leopard print wrap dress!

I made this from a vintage @simplicity_creative_group pattern from 1976. And obviously I kept the deliciously gigantic collar and cuffs untouched. Because #gobigorgohome. This was my go-to dress when I wanted to look dressed up this winter. More photos and details on the blog today.

Working on something pretty darn exciting with this beautiful print today. Can’t reveal what it’ll become just yet, but I couldn’t not share this print before I cut into it!
Fabric from @spoonflower on sports Lycra base - it’s dreamy 😍
(P.s. spot the blue stained hands - it was hair dye day today and I’d run out of gloves 🙈)

I don’t always plan out my projects but some are too fun not to. I’ve been hunting for the perfect lemon fabric for pretty much a year and @spoonflower have made my sewing dreams come true with this #dolcegabbana inspired print, printed on their cotton sateen fabric for an extra special finish. I can’t wait to start this one! 🙌🏻🍋 What would your dream fabric be?

I found this gorgeous woolen at #ModesetTravaux Paris last week. I fell in love with it at first sight 😍.
I was looking for a very special fabric to sew myself a new coat for next winter... and there it was! 😊 It remind me #kenzo or #desigual style
I have so many woolen fabric at home but none have this "cachet".
See you next winter to meet my coat 😎
