The Clare Pant from Stylearc

This time I have something a little different to share – I made trousers!

Being part of the Sewisfaction blogger team, I am lucky enough to regularly have access to their beautiful range of stunning fabrics, and am able to take my pick of something fabulous to make and share.

This time I opted for the most perfect Robert Kaufmann chambray in this completely wonderful grey/blue shade. It’s comfortable to wear, simple to sew with and the neutral colour is just so easy to wear with t-shirts and trainers or with a dressier top and shoes if you like.

The pattern that I chose is The Clare Pant from Stylearc. It ticks all the boxes that I was looking for in a wide leg cropped trouser pattern and as this is a blog post that I have written for Sewisfaction, the full review including lots more photos can be found over on their blog here.

Huge thanks to Sheona at Sewisfaction for her generosity in sending me this fabric to work with, and I hope that you love them as much as I do!

Take care, I’ll be back soon,

The Pippi Pinafore from Jennifer Lauren Handmade

As you may know, each month I write a blog post on the Minerva Crafts Blogger Network and this month I am talking about the Jennifer Lauren Handmade Pippi Pinafore.

Ever since this pattern was released I have been eyeing it up (along with other patterns by this clever designer), there are lots of versions to see over on Instagram, and they’re all amazing.

I love the criss-cross strap feature at the back of the dress, and also cute details such as the button placket, skirt pleats and pockets.

I won’t go into detail, as this is a post that I have written for the Blogger Network, and you can read my full review here. But I would like to give a big thumbs up to the lovely navy blue chambray that was sent to me by Minerva Crafts in exchange for my review. It’s my favourite shade of blue and the quality is really lovely.

Thank you for dropping by today, and I’ll see you over at the Blogger Network!

Take care, and I’ll be back soon,
