I needed something cool and comfortable for walking in so I made myself a pair of pants using Butterick 5655 and a top to match using Vogue 8822.

Perfect pants for walking in

My first self draft wearable pattern for my fashion design course… happy to report for the practical & written assignment I go a HD (High Distinction)

Self drafted cowl neck top

Flower Power Hippy Chick top – Katherine Tilton Vogue 8691 pattern.  I made a few changes to this pattern including adding a lace overlay to the bodice section.

Definitely feel like a bit of a hippy chick... this is Zoe my little scruffy baby girl.


Pavlova Wrap Top & Circle Skirt – I’m loving the look of this combination.  The top is made from a black jersey knit fabric and the skirt fabric was a surprise gift from my hubby’s darling Nanna Shirley.

I'm actually feeling kinda sexy in this little number...and loving the shoes too :)

Lily Skirt – I was chosen as a pattern tester for this pretty skirt and shared a review about it here.

Chris Lucas - Lilly Skirt 3

High Waisted Pencil Skirt with Boning… this one is my second Pencil Skirt and it has a high waistband with added boning and was the first time I’d sewn anything using boning and I love it.

Pencil skirt – This project was a sewing dare I was given and I’m so glad I took up the dare.  The skirt actually started it’s life as the lining for the skirt and ended up being a skirt all of it’s own which I also lined.  I’m really happy with the waistband on this skirt… for more pics click here or on the image below

Simplicity 2058 skirt – I love the colours in this fabric and the style of this skirt… makes me feel a little classy and a little sexy all rolled into one LOL

Tiramisu – the Cake Sewing Pattern – Tiramisu was like it was made for me as the fit was perfect without any pattern alterations.

New Look 6609 Skirt.  I added a lining to this skirt as the fabric was a little sheer.

Vogue 1027… this is such a comfortable dress.  I made this dress with fabric my husband got me for Christmas 2012

McCalls 5974 I love this dress… I didn’t add the waistband ties as the pattern called for.

Simplicity 2634 View F from the Khaliah Ali Collection

Vogue 8815… My peplum top started life as a muslin but turned into a wearable.
