Helen's Closet Suki Kimono for #sewmystyle2018

Helen's Closet Suki Kimono for #sewmystyle2018

The Suki Kimono by Helen’s Closet is such a good pattern for creating staple wardrobe items. There is a lot of versatility within this pattern, and I have loved seeing the different versions being created this month as part of #sewmystyle2018. This is a pattern that I really enjoyed to sew – it isn’t too challenging but does have a number of features such as the waist ties and neckband that are unusual and make this handmade robe look different to a high street version.

Sew Over it Pussy Bow Blouse - take 2

If it isn't obvious by now that I am a Sew Over It fan girl, then I'll give you a head's up - I love their patterns. I hardly ever return to patterns because I'm usually too eager to make the next thing on my wishlist, but theirs are the ones that I do return to. My first Pussy Bow Blouse is a staple item in my work wardrobe. It has lasted a good three years, and gets the toughest of wears, but is starting to show signs of the toils I put it through, so I made another one. I didn't learn from the first one though, which is a shame! PS - worn here with my Ginger Jeans.

Papercut Patterns Adrift Dress

Papercut Patterns Adrift Dress pattern review

The Adrift dress is part of Papercut Pattern’s nautically inspired ‘Ahoy!’ collection. It features a wrap skirt with gentle ruffles at the sleeves and hem .... after copious watching of the Royal Wedding last month I'm fairly certain that ruffles are a trend that is here to stay. I love the styling of Papercut Patterns and enjoy wearing this dress because it’s so comfortable yet still looks elegant.
