Autumn Fabric: The Ultimate Guide

By 4 months ago 398 Views No comments

With the stresses of September finally over, it's time to concentrate on what really matters: kicking your feet up, logging into Fabric Yard, and choosing all the fabric you'll need this October!

How did September treat you? If you feel chewed up and spat out you should pick up a crystal ball, because sister, you're reading my mind.

This month I,

  1. Waved my Summer wardrobe Goodbye (I chased after the train to tell her I made a huge mistake, but two weeks in made my peace)
  2. Sewed 4 new Autumn pieces
  3. Exhumed many a quilt and blanket (bartering necessary after the profanities I told them in June)
  4. Got the flue 3 times
  5. Started adding turmeric to my coffee (like this, but shot of espresso necessary)

**If you haven't made one of these lists yet, it's the best mood booster after pretty fabric.

On Parade Babydoll Dress

By 6 months ago 856 Views No comments

Oh Sundays...

Before I hem the neckline, the sun is already setting.

Every Sunday I treat myself to a sewing day. Today I decided to finally finish off this piece- a babydoll dress made of one of my all time favourites from Michael Miller's borders. I'd got a metre of this a while back, but decided to order some plain white cotton off eBay for the top part. Classic eBay, the fabric took it's sweet time before finally arriving on my doorstep this Friday!

Great British Sewing Bee

Well they're back! Patrick and May have returned to run their critical eye over the work of amateur sewists. And just like Lauren did in the first series, Tamara is giving me serious style envy. I'm as interested to see what she is wearing as what she is making! Just look at this dress shes wearing in tonights episode. I mean seriously. I don't know if she made it, but judging by the rest of her outfits that she has made, I wouldn't be suprised if she did.
