pink-umbrella added the project Sadie gypsy-print top
This top was the VERY first time I used jersey, geometrical- print fabric (difficult to match up the sides!), and a twin needle!! So I am very happy with the end result, although it is very gapy ar…
pink-umbrella commented on the project my purple azalea
I love it!! I’ve been wondering whether to do azalea for a while, I was even considering to make it for my sister. Is it difficult to make?
pink-umbrella commented on the project Cotton Ivey
I love it!! I can’t believe you didn’t use a pattern- it looks just like a skirt I saw in a shop the other day! I love the buttons and the fabric is great!

pink-umbrella commented on the project Blue RE-cycled mumu
I really, really love it! The fabric is great and I love the two gold buttons at the top.
pink-umbrella added the project Eclectic A-line skirt
This skirt was lots of fun to make. Originally, it was just to use up scrap material, but then I got so stuck into it to perfect it! I made the pattern myself, and is a variation of the pattern I u…
pink-umbrella added the project Parasol Skirt
This short-length skirt has a high waist and round, gathered pockets (which are finished with a navy blue trim). It is casual and easy to wear, with a zipper down the side.
pink-umbrella commented on the project the elizabeth blouse
I love it!! Wish I could buy one… The photography is also amazing, like it has just come out of a magazine! Great job
pink-umbrella added the project Summer Butterfly Dress
My first refashioning project!! I took one of mum’s old skirts that she never wore and cut it all up (with her permission, of course!). I first unpicked the yoke and then evened up the top edge. Ne…
