    Dsc00796_listing

    I recently made this dress from fabric which has been in my sewing room for over a year. I bought it at a vintage fair in Cardiff last summer. It was an odd shape of fabric, only about 1.5m and one…

    Dsc00757_listing

    I’m pretty much going to let these pictures speak for themselves, but I recently had the opportunity to make my future sister in laws wedding dress.

    This was such an honour and I was so pleased …

    laracrj added the project Pleated skirt with trim
    Dsc00404_listing

    This project was a complete stash-busting project. I had a metre of this navy wool left after this dress, a couple of metres of this lovely trim, the zip, and literally scraps of the bright blue fo…

    laracrj commented on the project Circle skirt wardrobe fillers

    Ha ha thanks! That’s why it’s so hard to buy fabric online I guess. Neoprene would be really cool though!

    laracrj added the project Polka dot pleat perfection
    Dsc09942_listing

    I feel like I say this every other post, but I strongly feel that polka dots make everything better!
    Especially when they’re navy and white.
    This is the fourth and final (for now) skirt that I ma…

    To make this skirt, I literally pleated a big rectangle onto a smaller rectangle for the waistband. I don’t have much more to say about his, but I do know that this will go with pretty much everyth…

    I used New Look 6145. I can’t remember what size I made it, but I do remember choosing to make it so that the finished measurements were fairly loose around the waist especially.

    Dsc09740_listing

    This is a self-drafted dress made from the same fabric as a previous top.

    The nature of the jersey meant that I didn’t need to add any darts, but I did need a zip as it doesn’t have that much st…
