Period Pants

If it isn’t obvious from the title of this post, I’m going to be talking about making period pants, which means by default I’ll be talking about periods. I’ll try not to get too detailed but consider this a warning just in case you’re not fond of menstrual chat.

Make Nine 2020: Gimlet Boilersuit

The Gimlet Boilersuit by Our Lady of Leisure patterns is much like it’s alcoholic namesake in that it is deceptively simple and very chic. I popped this one on my Make Nine list as I had bought the pattern with a gift voucher I got for Christmas and I knew it would be a really good go-to piece for my wardrobe.

A Needlecord Hazel Dress

There’s so much to love about the Hazel; it’s easy to fit, simple to make but with lovely diagonal style lines in the bodice, it has pockets, you can wear it on its own or as a pinafore over a t-shirt or blouse, the shape is classic and you can hack it a million ways.

Make Nine 2020: Avery Leggings

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I’ve taken this week as holiday from the day job, not for any particular reason but I’ve been getting through the Bunny Bosworth to-do list quite well and have checked off a few personal tasks too. Top of my list for today is going to B&Q to buy shed paint…

Urban Camouflage (The Dรนn รˆideann Coat)

I moved out of my city centre flat and into a little terrace just out of the centre a few months ago. The benefits are possibly too many to list here but having a bedroom with a window ranks pretty high, as does having my own outside space. And do you know comes with outside…

New Look 6493 Jumpsuit

It’s great when a pattern comes with a warning . Not an official warning, but a friendly neighbourhood warning from concerned Instagram citizens; THIS PATTERN IS HUGE AND SHOULD BE APPROACHED WITH CAUTION. Whenever I’m thinking about getting a pattern I like to do a sweep of Instagram to see other people’s makes, get a…
