This is a story about culottes… a pair I made a while ago… that I had photographed a while ago… but that I’ve been delaying blogging about. I’m not sure why, but here I am to share them. I had also made a top to go with them so thought I’d share that here too.… Continue reading Big ass trousers
One of patterns I chose for my ‘make nine’ this year was the Fringe Dress by Chalk and Notch. I’ve loved this pattern since it was released, and other people’s versions really haven’t been helping that obsession (seriously, they’ve been beautiful).

So you may have guessed that my favourite, tried and tested, multi-hacked pattern is the Grainline Scout tee. I’ve made a fair few, and worn them all loads! But my latest one… well… I’m not so sure. I decided to do a little bit more of a dramatic hack with this one. Not only did… Continue reading A Scout I’m not sure about
