More stripes, more Papercut Ooh La Leggings and one of the few Grainline Studio Lark Tees I made lately. While down under spring has officially begun, up here in the northern hemisphere autumn just started to quietly creep in, with its random storms and cooler nights. And while I’d love to sew many more… Continue reading Ooh La Leggings + Lark Tee
This summer has been all about stripes around here and it looks like I don’t want to give it up either!

I think I’ve waited so long before using it just because it hasn’t much… Continue reading Tilly and the buttons / Midi Coco dress

Time for another Morris, everyone! I’ve got a good excuse though: the pattern is drafted to suit knit as well as stretch woven fabrics, so I just needed to check the look of this blazer in both of them. For this second version, I’ve used a stretch sort of denim/twill in an awesome shade of… Continue reading Grainline Studio / Morris in Gold
Happy Friday to me! Yep, I’ve been working the whole weekend so I feel like Friday is finally here. How did your weekend go instead? Sewing or knitting anyone?

Today it’s the turn of the Ooh La Leggings, a pair of ‘fuseaux’ with front and back seam details, in three lengths variations – long, 3/4 and just below the knee. The pattern suggests the use of high stretch knit fabrics with a good… Continue reading Papercut Ooh La Leggings!
Co-ordinates are the trend of the moment and the gorgeous Sophie at Ada Spragg knew it already several weeks ago when she thought to organize a Two Piece Set-acular party. How to resist?
