It’s been busy couple of weeks so this is coming a little later than I expected. However, I am resisting the urge to apologize because it’s my blog and that means I don’t have to apologise for not writing this sooner.

I got their jade crepe. Such a beautiful colour! https://www.instagram.com/p/BKl7ARqBrQa/?taken-by=lottieoflosori I knew I wanted to make an Orla… Continue reading Tilly and the Buttons Orla Top
It’s no secret that I love my space print Lilou. So much so that I am seriously thinking about making another space printed Lilou… I learnt a lot of skills during this make, the main one being there is a reason patterns give a recommended zip length. I went for one way too short because… Continue reading Mending: Space Dress Edition
I am loving this weather at the moment! I’ve been spending my free time out and about enjoying the sunshine, so here’s a mend from the archives of my wardrobe. Although, while I’m writing this it has suddenly decided to bucket it down... I got this jumper years ago from H&M (where basically all of… Continue reading Mending: Jumper Edition
