  • Sneak peek of my @mccallpatternuk dress for the @eveappeal Sip and Sew initiative. I'm working with ALL THE tricky fabrics but bullied them into submission. Also thanks to the lovely Brenda of @vlieseline_uk I did away with stay stitching the neckline of my liquid satin (it usually distorts it) and used some of their staystitch interfacing! Worked an absolute treat... I'm 100% converted! Where can I get a whole roll guys? @vlieseline_uk 😍.

  • For those of you who missed the sarcastic undertones in my last last, I DID NOT make that beautiful seahorse. That was all @englishtailoress work. I did however learn to how to lace up the frame and the fundamentals of tambour beading ❤️ @englishtailoress has a 3 day course running in London to learn how to create the seahorse. Anyone want to put me up? 😂.
.
Apart from my tambour beading investment I made two sensible purchases that I needed. Some exquisitely heavy corduroy from @hollandandsherryapparel of Seville row and some green jersey (rach got the blue version) for a seasonal cardigan from @doughtysonline .
Loved seeing so many people over the weekend. ❤️

  • Today I've been learning tambour beading with the super talented @englishtailoress. Obviously this is what I made in 2 hours..... 😬😂.
.
Maybe my dream of a tambour beaded wedding dress are just dreams...

  • You go to a sewing event and you end up only buying socks for your partner ... well, they are his favorite socks 😂 first selfless sewing spend I think I've ever had!

  • Doing the thing. Arriving super late today but I'm staying over tonight so I'll see you all Saturday! Anyone fancy meeting up for a hug before we all leave tomorrow? Thinking maybe at @thefoldline (stand F8) as it's near the entrance/exit. Nothing that gets in the way of workshops/shopping. Maybe around 4? Anyone up for it?

  • I've had a few handmade holidays, but this dress was definitely my favorite. 2 years ago when I went to Ny/Fl I needed a dress for the Halloween 👻 horror nights that I wouldn't get told I could not wear.... (no costumes) but was costume enough to be Halloween. I decided to try a neon sugar skull reversible @byhandlondon Anna dress! It worked perfectly. I wore the blue side to sneak in and then did a switch-a-roo in the toilets before heading out into the fright fest. Got SO MANY compliments about that dress that the tactical lining was worth every hand stitch.
