Cosy 'Cabin Pants' made in our organic Teltta sweatshirt fabric from Finland

I've had the Hudson Pant sewing pattern printed and cut out for around two years! I suppose I'm not really a sweat pant wearing person but I liked the style of these and thought they looked fun to make. Decided our Tellta fabric was ideal, outdoor vibes and chilling in the woods.  Modelled here by my daughter Amber, they're possibly a little big for her but she wore them for the rest of the day saying they are the comfiest ever. I think she will keep them!

Lark Tee made in Monochrome 'Straws' Jersey Knit

I love sewing with Finland knits, they are so well made and tend not to stretch out due to the good amount of elastane in them. This fabric Monochrome Straws form our collection is organic jersey from Finnish design brand Papu Stories. Here I made the classic Lark Tee sewing pattern by Grainline Studio (one of my favourite pattern designers). This version is a short sleeved crew neck, perfect to wear with jeans. Shortening this by 3 inches was my only alteration, I find this pattern quite long for me. Really happy with the result. Blah...

Ogden Cami made in African hand dyed indigo cotton

Another successful Spain make for this year, the Odgen Cami by True Bias in our African Indigo Cotton. This top was just perfect for the intense heat, feels really floaty and very nice to wear. As this hand dyed fabric comes in quite a narrow width I didn't cut enough from the bolt so I improvised and pieced it together flipping the design around and forming a seam down the middle - a detail I quite liked in the end. I didn't need to make any other adjustments, the fit was simply perfect on me which is a surprise for this style on my slightly short...

Beach dress made in Tatouée Pour La Journée jersey

I tend to only wear dresses in the summer but living in the UK doesn't always mean warm weather! Having a family trip to Spain planned I leapt at the opportunity to sew this fun fabric up into an easy 'throw it over a bikini' style beach dress. This Tatouee Pour La Journee fabric has a great quality stretch and is easy to sew, I didn't use my overlocker, just a regular small zig-zag that works so well on stretch fabrics. I couldn't find the style I wanted in a dress pattern so I chose a top to extend into a dress. Settling on...
