    Amy Thomas added the project "Electric Petunia" Belladone
    2013-08-28_21_15_30_edited-1_listing

    For the dress I cut a straight 38. It fit almost perfectly out the packet (love it when this happens). I just made a teeny adjustment to the waist position and to the back skirt pieces.

    Amy Thomas added the project Smile for the Birdie button back blouse
    Img_20130224_182921_listing

    I cooked up the idea of adapting it to use buttons at the back quite a while ago but couldn’t wrap my brain around the logistics of the conversion.

    2012-12-05_20_18_45_listing

    I’ve wanted to make a Colette Truffle dress for ages. So I decided to make one for my work Xmas Party!

    Img_20121109_192138_listing

    Yaaaaaaaaay I’ve finally finished a new look 6808 top after buying the pattern nearly a year ago.
    Why so long you might ask? Well it took me this long to fit it properly.
    I made four attempts. FO…

    Thanks! Sorry, not online as they’re just a Market stall. If you’re ever in Leeds I highly recommend going!

    Imag0359_listing

    I saw a gorgeous red polka dot Sosie dress worn by Elsie on A Beautiful Mess. Now I wasn’t going to pay to buy the dress and have it shipped to England when I could sew something myself!
    I drafted…

    Img00083-20120317-1700_listing

    A dress I started before I had a serger. It promptly started falling apart and I was scared to wear it outside in case the skirt fell off!
    Then I got my darling little Sergei the serger and unpick…

    Amy Thomas added the project B5653 – The Cambie nightie
    A1yj0hvcmaai7kz_listing
