Mint Button


Forsythe dress

This dress has been a LONG time in the making! I first fell in love with this linen from Merchant and Mills in summer 2019 and then finally convinced myself to buy some last August when I visited Rye with Patsy. I kept my eye out for patterns that would offer opportunities to play with stripes and struck gold with the French Navy Forsythe dress!

Davenport dress

Patsy and I have done a fair bit of remote buddy sewing during the pandemic, but nothing beats sitting down next to each other at our machines and stitching away in the same room. It wasn’t difficult to choose the project we would work on as we had both fallen hard for the new Friday Pattern Company Davenport dress when it was released a few weeks ago.

Zoey blouse

As part of my recent collaboration with the lovely ladies at Atelier Jupe, I was gifted a pattern of my choice from their range. Their garments are simple, wearable and very chic, so choosing just one to make was tricky!
