We’ve been lucky enough to have some lovely warm weather here in Birmingham, which was ideal for our summer party at the weekend. 

We know that picking out patterns can be a hard decision sometimes so we selected a collection of patterns that are great for mixing and matching to give you a lovely summer handmade wardrobe. And to make it even easier we stitched up lots of samples so you could really see how a pattern looks in the flesh!

Aww it’s the last week already of this years summer series! I’ve loved it and the weeks seem to have flown by so quickly and judging by how quickly our kits have been selling out, it seems you guys have been loving it too.

I’m so sorry if you’ve missed out on a kit, I hope it’s still given you lots of ideas, tips and inspiration! Sewing your own clothes doesn’t always have to mean sewing everything you wear so my aim was to show you different individual items that you can easily mix and match with other things you already own whether they are shop bought or handmade.

For this final week I’ve chosen another pattern that is a lovely one for mixing and matching with your existing wardrobe as well as the other pattern I’ve chosen for the series and it is the Deer and Doe Nenuphar jacket.

It’s week three of this years Summer capsule wardrobe series and I can’t wait to share my next pattern choice! It’s really taken me by surprise so I hope you feel inspired too!

Continuing the theme of ‘one pattern, four ways’,  where I want to show you how versatile the Truebias Ogden cami top can be and how to style it in different ways, I’ve chosen the another Truebias pattern - the Lander pants and shorts! 

These are such a great separate to have in your wardrobe and will go with so many things!

Happy June everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely month so far!? I’m really excited to share week one of this years summer capsule wardrobe series today!

I loved putting it together last year for you and so many people seemed to enjoy it too – if you missed last years I’ve linked to a few of the posts at the bottom of the page.

This year is themed around one key pattern – the Truebias Ogden Cami – and I plan on showing you how versatile it can be and how to mix and match it with other patterns for different looks – so the theme is one pattern four ways!

As our new window display has been in for a few weeks now I thought it was time to show you around and also add in a little studio tour as well. As you may remember from previous similar blog posts, its Jo who works in the shop who designs and puts in all of our windows and always does such an amazing job! 

For those of you who can't make it into the shop, I hope it gives you a little idea of what its like and you can imagine looking around. Check out my latest Youtube video below to see it all.

I’m sure you know the feeling, when you find a pattern that you really love and you end up making lots of different versions of it! The Grainline Linden sweatshirt is a classic example for me, I’ve probably made about 10 over the past few years!

After another version of the Closet Case Patterns Kalle Shirt ran off my sewing machine a few weeks ago, I realised that it’s become one of my tried and testes patterns two. I’ve now got 5 versions, so I though it would be a great time to show you how it can work with different variations and different fabrics.
