Lots of sewing on the go!

I have been sew busy!! I have been making lots of pairs of knickers, these are samples for the new kits that will be added to the website in the next few days

Tiny flower knickersThe fabric and knicker elastic is already available to buy and so is the sewing pattern  

Tiny floral fabricI have also recently finished making the Colette Laurel dress for my daughter

Laurel dressIt is a lovely simple dress to make, it introduced me to some new techniques that I will use again and again such as bias binding for the sleeves and neckline and underlining, so simple and such a professional looking finish! The instruction booklet is excellent and the downloadable extra’s are great too!

Laurel dressI used a contrasting flower print bias binding which looks so lovely!

  1. Ooh….more gorgeous knickers!!! I haven’t made anymore since the ones youve posted on your website but i definitely plan to and ive recommended them on my blog. Your daughter’s dress is so so pretty, fabric and design….bet she’s thrilled with it! Kate x

    • I love making knickers, I have got it down to a fine art and can knock up a pair in about 30 minutes which is great for presents for friends and uses up smallish scraps of fabric. My daughter wants me to make another Laurel for her to wear to her summer ball.

  2. Great Laurel and I like the jersey dress too! All your sewing makes me feel so lazy, I have four days off work now though and the plan is to sew, sew, sew!

  3. You have been busy! Totally love the new knickers and Colette dress, I was thinking of trying out the Juniper pattern, but after seeing your laurel dress i might have to think again!
