I hate bra shopping. I mean, I’m not super keen on clothes shopping in general, but bras are stressful. Boobs are not grown in set cup sizes, and also are not symmetrical, unless you payed for them to be I guess. I wonder if buying bras is easier after a boob job? Anyway, in this… Continue reading My First Foray into Lingerie
https://www.instagram.com/p/BTmZVeylp8t/?taken-by=lottieoflosori I’m pretty pleased with this one! I know I say that about all of my makes... I made this in something of a fever at about midnight one weekend. I wasn’t ready for bed y’all! Some go clubbing, I go sewing. Both equally valid btw, no judgement here. Anyway, my partner had a big… Continue reading Striped Turtle Neck Refashion
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. My mum was having a clear out and I managed to score a load… Continue reading Vintage Fabric, New Skirt

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
It’s March! I’m not always wearing gloves because I don’t need them! Spring is certainly on this way, and I am feeling the spring clean, new start kind of vibes right now. As you might guess from the boxes in some of these shots, we moved a couple of weeks ago. The new apartment is… Continue reading A Zip After My Own Heart
This post has taken me a long old time to write. Do you ever feel like you’ve been experiencing too much internet? I just felt smothered by it. So, I deleted all my social media apps from my phone, stopped refreshing the Guardian homepage every three minutes, and tried to spend more time doing other… Continue reading Happy Birthday Blog!
As promised, here are some snaps from my holiday in Dubrovnik. This isn’t a travel blog so I won’t bore you all with too many details about the place itself. Basically, if you like ice cream, blue seas and beautiful roofs, go to Dubrovnik like right away. It’s awesome. This holiday was a great last swan… Continue reading Sew stylish- Dubrovnik
There was a bit of a journey to get to a finished and photographed garment here. I shall detail this for you now. As an aside, I’ve been feeling like a mess up makes for a more interesting post, but it meant I experienced strife. Do I secretly want to suffer so that my blog… Continue reading Sleeveless Mimi Blouse
