This post comes with a caveat – as always with my posts with photos unfortunately. As much as I try I cannot improve my photography. It may be because I really don’t understand the whole process, and the will isn’t really there to delve into yet another new venture, I must admit. So here are my offerings of my latest makes as promised;

First up just on picture of my latest ‘Burr’ , not a lot more to say about skirt october 19th 2013 002

Next up is the new version of the button through Simplicity that I have made once before. This is in a ribbed stretch jersey type fabric, but quite firmish [if any of that makes sense]. I notice that I really should have pressed it before taking a photo as I had worn it once, but I wanted to take the photo taken and up before I forgot. It certainly looks a lot better when worn than on the dress form, so I hope you will bear with it!

Just a photo of the front and a close up of the back. There are also two pockets in the side seams. It is very wearable and comfortable. All bonuses in my book!


I love all things creative and an eternal enthusiast. I am enduringly interested in absolutely everything remotely creative and never happier than when being shown 'how to'.

  1. I love your new garments. The colour of the cardigan is lovely and the skirt is gorgeous. I am too scared to make a button up skirt, just in case I ruin the buttonholes. Yours look great. 🙂

      Thanks so much – I know what you mean about buttonholes, and mine aren’t that beautiful but I am so pleased that I can do them at all. That was one of my ‘things’ this year – using my sewing machine [I now have 4!!] and learning to use the buttonholer properly. I’d previously done it all by hand – couture style, so very slow….now I can run up a shirt in a few days – which is what I’m doing today. Obviously never too old to learn!. Happy sewing.
