Georgie Pinafore

Much like pairs of dungarees, I can never have too many pinafore dresses. The Helen’s Closet York pinafore is a favourite and features in my wardrobe 3 times, but Jennifer Lauren is the queen of pinafore patterns – I have made 2 each of the Ivy and Pippi and Georgie is the latest addition to my collection!

Make Nine 2022

Happy New Year! Although 2020 is shaping up to be a bit of a trilogy, among all the uncertainty that a global pandemic brings, something I can plan with assurance are my sewing projects!

Olya Shirtdress

I made my first Paper Theory Patterns Olya shirtdress in May last year and it is something I reach for in my wardrobe at lot.
