Spring zippy jacket and Wendy Ward book giveaway.

During the run up to #MeMadeMay I get out all my handmade garments and RTW items and have an evaluation about what I wear, what I don’t…

  • It's another scorcher ☀️ over here which means I'll be wearing my newest make, my Beatrice pinafore dress by @sewmesomething. I'm in love with those big pockets!!!! I fully lined it so technically it's reversible too.  Perfect loose linen dress to sew in, which are my plans ALWAYS. ❤️ .
Pattern from @sewcraftyshop and both linens from @fabworksmillshop. Ink blue gifted by @cara.ff ❤️. Other colour: lively lime. .

  • I love it when you take on a pattern that 'you totally don't need instructions' on, teaches you something new. Perfect round bottom pockets for my @sewmesomething Beatrice pinafore. Should of known that Jules would sneak in some great construction. She was my sewing teacher back in the day, after all. Love you Jules 😘.

  • Today my Favorite badge should read 'eliminate HATE'. My enamel and real heart go out to Manchester. My second city, and the home of my second family. 
Thank you to all your support for yesterday. You guys remind me daily of the beauty of majority and not the ugliness of few. Xxx

  • Sadly no me mades today because I'm off to a job interview and I don't have any cooperate clothing 🙈. Also I'm wearing TROUSERS!?!?. The position is to work for the DWP as a community mental Heath partner. Supporting front line workers to understand the issues surrounding gaining sustainable employment for those with mental Heath conditions. I'm passionate about educating others to drop their pre exciting ideas of what 'being mental' mean and creating a forum where we can break stigma and talk openly about mental health. Let's hope the DWP feel the same! Wish me luck.
.
Also note to self: make some FLIPPING trousers!.

  • Today I'm working on this very much needed Beatrice pinafore as part of the @sewcraftyshop design team 😍. Just trying to decide what fabric to use.... linen is mandatory 😊. .
Pattern: @sewmesomething Beatrice from @sewcraftyshop. Fabrics: linen from @fabworksmillshop.

  • Me made May. Home edition: Yesterday @sleepless_in_bavaria gifted me and ed ALL THE THINGS before she moves and now our front room has a sofa!!!! I'm so happy that @nelnanandnora's louis the llama loves the sofa as much as us, although waldo who knows he's off limits is slightly concerned he's going to get yelled at. 😂 That cacti fabric was also a lovely gift from @hannahjanefellows, which I've whipped up into a plush back blanket for lazy Sunday sleeps. Lucky I have some @suzyultman llama fabric left from my @sewcraftyshop monthly make so I can pillow out the sofa ❤️. The house is finally looking like a home 🏡💕. .

  • Me made? Well, I planted a conker when I was 6 and now it's a beautiful horse chestnut tree. I've spent years cultivating, repotting and enjoying her grow up. We moved her from my mums a few weeks ago (it was a 4 man job) and now she's happily repotted in a massive barrel and already grown an extra foot 😍. Think she's happy here at williamsville. As am I ❤️.
Enjoy the blue skies today, I hope they last.

  • Catching up with #mmmay17 with this very early @grainlinestudio hemlock tee, which was my very first adventure into stripe matching. Still proud that it worked out great 💙This top is now over 4 years old and still in regular rotation. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 I call that a me made win.
