    pinkswizzlestick added the project New Clothes for New Twins
    Baby-overalls-x-2-close-up_listing

    When my oldest friend (I’ve known her nearly 25 years now) announced she was pregnant last year, I knew I wanted to make her a gift (and unlike my Nana and my mum, my knitting is not up to much – t…

    pinkswizzlestick added the project Floral 50s-Style Dress
    Floral_dress_listing

    Curtains to dress, maybe a bit bit spring-like for cold wet November.

    It’s a combination of two patterns, a self-drafted bodice (not the best idea) and the skirt from a brought pattern.

    I lov…

    pinkswizzlestick added the project Lace Trim Pencil Skirt
    Dscn0762_listing

    I love it, it’s really simple. I found the trim in a curtain shop, it’s the sort of half lace you find in restaurant windows, and thought it would look great on the bottom of a skirt.

    Meanwhile …

    pinkswizzlestick commented on the project Charcoal Tulip Dress

    It’s a regular length pattern (I think it’s the suit that’s the petite), though I did add a couple of inches to the skirt length as I couldn’t see how long it was in the picture and I wanted it on …

    pinkswizzlestick added the project Charcoal Tulip Dress
    Dscn0503_listing

    My new year’s resolution is to sew at least one item of clothing a month – and use up some of my massive fabric store. This is January.

    I’ve been after a simple shift dress pattern for a while. …

    pinkswizzlestick added the project Blue and Yellow Flowers Blouse
    Cimg1171_listing

    I’ve been looking for a tie-neck blouse for ages, and for this fabric which I fell in love with in a fabric shop, so I pounced on this pattern in the May edition of Burda Style magazine.

    I put i…

    pinkswizzlestick added the project Red Leaves Dress
    Red_leaves_dress_listing

    I’m so ridiculously happy with the way this dress turned out, I actually danced round my room in it once I finished it.

    It was a lot easier to make than I was expecting, I totally thought I’d ha…

    pinkswizzlestick added the project Orange Butterflies Dress
    Orange_butterfly_dress_listing

    The slowest summer dress ever.

    I started this last spring, failed to finish it before we had good weather, then gave up on it when it rained most of July and August and summer dresses seemed a …
