I told you another Coco was on the cards! Pretty much as soon as the last hem was finished on my green Tilly and the Buttons Coco dress I was cutting out my next. I purchased this remnant of drapey jersey from Abakhan Fabrics in Manchester because I thought it was enough to make a… Continue reading Drapey Coco top
The Coco pattern by Tilly and the Buttons was one of the first patterns I purchased, and I finally made one!
I'm not sure about any of the expressions I gave in any of these photos... It’s me again! I’ve had a lot of exciting opportunities recently which is great, but does mean a lot less time for the old blog. That being said, I have a new make to show you all! It is my… Continue reading Pattern Testing Jazz by Ready To Sew
This pattern was originally my Mum’s from the past (I think the 80’s), and it has variations for culottes at different lengths, skirts and trousers. That’s pretty much all the types of clothing you can have on your bum! This pattern could be all you need. It’s an easy pattern, with minimal pieces. It’s pretty… Continue reading Butterick 4872 Culottes
I know what you're thinking. This isn't Lottie, how did her hair grow that quickly? To that, I would say 'What are you talking about? Of course this isn't me, this is clearly another woman.' Welcome to my Restyling Exchange entry! This was my first time participating in a challenge of this type; sending things… Continue reading Restyling Exchange 2017
This make was rather a long time coming. All the way back in September, I was encouraged to buy this teal crepe from Sew Over It by Pocket for Sweets, during the Instagram challenge Sew Photo Hop. 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
Welcome to another edition of Reel Life, where I find ways you can dress like your favourite characters from screen in the outside world. I love Zootopia/ Zootropolis/ whatever you call it where you live, and so I had to create a look for Lieutenant Judy Hopps. Excitingly, you can recreate this look with independent… Continue reading Reel Life- Judy Hopps
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
I used to have long hair. It was determined to be straight and limp and boring, not matter how much I messed with it. I would curl it, it would deflate within the hour. I also had very little interest in doing anything cool with it. A bun was too complicated for me to work… Continue reading Tablecloth Skirt Mark Two
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!
