A new addition…

I have a little confession to make… I know I have been a little quiet on here and there is only one reason why. For my birthday, I got a new sewing machine!!! 

…and since then all I have been doing is sewing. 


So I thought I’d start writing about my sewing too! And Since having my beautiful machine I have made 3 items of clothing with it:

1. Coco Top- Tilly and the Buttons.

 With the help of Jane of Jane Makes I found some lovely stripe print Jersey and using Tilly’s Coco pattern, constructed this top. It’s comfy and fits lovely and I was very pleased with it considering I hadn’t touched a sewing machine since my GCSE’s 10 years ago! 
2. Sleeveless Shell Top- The Great British Sewing Bee Fashion with Fabric.

I was delighted when on my birthday, I unwrapped the most amazing book from Jane.  The Great British Sewing Be Fashion with Fabric. It is a fantastic book which came with 30 patterns! And in depth instructions on how to make each one! Thank you Jane! I finished off the hem of this shirt with some Liberty Bias Binding I picked up at Clothkits in Chichester.

3. Delphine Skirt- Tilly and the Buttons- Love at First Stitch.


This skirt is so lovely, and Tilly’s book is amaze balls! It’s also a step by step book with 5 patterns and tutorials to create your own patterns too! 

I made the skirt from navy garbardine and finished it with these cute brass buttons! 

I’ve already started to plan my next project- denim paisley print shorts for my brother! I can’t wait!
