    Dsc03977_listing

    sarahscustard added the project Little black (shirt) dress
    Dsc04051_listing

    This dress was made from a pattern (Burda 3504) found in an op shop. This is a great, simple pattern for a dress that everyone needs! At the time I found this pattern, I was in need of a new black …

    Hahaha :-D That’s so clever! I love that you were able to change the dress at the event – causing some serious head-turning!

    Dsc02271_listing

    I’d forgotten to buy a gift for a baby shower I had to go to, so an hour before I had to leave, I sewed a quick baby block with loops for easy grab-iness in bright colours. Win!

    The block took …

    Sarahsbag_listing

    I made this bag, based on a Very Purple Person’s pattern, to give to a workmate for her birthday. It’s great fun (but also a little stressful) choosing which two fabrics to make the bag out of!
