A scatty sewers journey through the world of sewing

The Belle of the ball

The new pattern by ‘wardrobe by me’ is an absolute essential flirty feminine skirt perfect for the summer.

The Belle skirt is so pretty, it flows out from a your waist and is incredibly flattering, I am a size 16 and I found it made me feel like regal lady in my fine dress.

I used a 100% cotton from my stash, I haven’t a clue where I picked it up from 😂, it was a really small black and red check although you can’t really see it in the pictures. I fancy making my next out of a linen mix maybe, but cotton is so easy to work with and to be honest because I pattern test for so many American designers who tend to favour jersey blend fabrics, I haven’t worked in cotton for over a year, so it was nice to get back to it.

I chose not to do the belt ties and tie option, but it looked just as good without, I just don’t really like belts and that, I know I’m a funny sod 😂😂

When I was taking pic’s typically the weather was dull and rainy so I ended out in my back garden dodging the showers, pity really as the pics would have been so much nicer if the sun had come out.

So the Belle skirt from wardrobe by me on sale until April the 4th from £6.34 from £7.74

Jessie and me

I’m really loving pattern testing for some amazing designers and some of the patterns are truly brilliant, such as the latest pattern from 5 out of 4 patterns the ‘Jessie’.

The pattern is really versatile, I made the dress with the crossover back, but there are options to make it into a top, with all sorts of sleeve and back options.

It can be dressed up or down I decided to team it with a furry headband and boots because I did the photo shoot in -14 degrees! Snow all around and freezing my bottom off, but my sister and I had real fun on this photo shoot.

The Jessie is on sale from 5 out of 4 site here
