I went to a wedding this summer for the first time since Covid. It was definitely an occasion that needed a new dress! I was lucky enough to receive a wonderful gift from Liberty and got my hands on the most spectacular silk print from their summer The Beauty and the Chaos collection. I’ve been […] The post The Timea dress // Vikisews appeared first on Self Assembly Required ..read more

Well it’s been a while hasn’t it? I didn’t intend on having such a long blogging break. I would start half writing a post and then would just never get round to finishing them or taking nice photos! It’s definitely become less important to me but I still think it’s nice to document my makes. […] The post Barbie pink playsuit // self drafted appeared first on Self Assembly Required ..read more

I finally did it though and made not one, but three versions of Rowan by Megan Nielsen. I picked this pattern as a base as […] The post 3 hacks on 3 Rowans // Megan Nielsen appeared first on Self Assembly Required ..read more

This project has been taking over most of my brain space for well over a month! I’ve been doing a bit of roller skating since the pandemic and I’ve been on the hunt for a decent skate bag ever since – not that I need one but I love an excuse to accessorise! Unfortunately skate […] The post The Skate Bag // from sketch to life appeared first on Self Assembly Required ..read more

Well I thought I’d start the year by catching up with all the makes I didn’t post about from 2022! (Let’s face it, there are quite a few!). This one is a vintage pattern I picked up from a car boot sale a couple of years ago. (Is 80s vintage now? I feel like if […] The post An 80s shirt // Style 4030 appeared first on Self Assembly Required ..read more

This blog has been rather sadly neglected of late. I can only hope to remedy that now! Today’s post has been over 6 months in the making – it’s a brand new knitted sweater! I’ve been really enjoying knitting of late as there’s something so satisfying about how little loops of yarn can turn into […] The post The Kalsoy Sweater // Kit Couture appeared first on Self Assembly Required ..read more

Every now and then I get a real hankering for a new pair of jeans. It doesn’t happen super often – the last successful pair I made was a pair of Closet Core Ginger Jeans back in early 2020 and those were a replacement for a pair that was in a bag that got stolen.
