A Darling Ranges Dress from Megan Nielsen

Just a brief one today guys, it’s time for another post on the Minerva site, and today I’m talking about my very first Darling Ranges shirt dress from Megan Nielsen.

As a Minerva Brand Ambassador, this beautiful 100% cotton floral fabric was very kindly gifted in exchange for a blog post on their site, so do head on over to the post here to read all about it.

Hope you love it!

Take care, and I’ll be back soon,

Another Hinterland Dress and a necklace launch!

Just a brief one today guys. Things have been a bit crazy here over the last couple of weeks, and not much sewing has been taking place. I’ve been a little tied up with a new item of sewing themed jewellery going live in the shop, but more about that later..

The only piece of sewing that I did manage to make is another version of the Hinterland Dress. I loved the last one that I made so much I wanted to make another one, but this time with short sleeves and a narrow waist tie.

I am so lucky to be part of the Minerva Brand Ambassador team, and knew that the latest fabric that they had kindly sent me would make the perfect Summer version of this pretty dress. This stunning lilac striped lined cotton blend is beautifully soft and comfortable to wear and I know it’s going to be perfect when warm weather eventually arrives!

If you head on over to the Minerva site here you can see more detailed pics of the dress, and the full review that I wrote for them, in exchange for this beautiful fabric.

Sooooo, the other thing that has been keeping me busy is the arrival of the latest member of the #sewdaintyjewellery family.

This silver thimble necklace is the perfect treat to yourself of gift to a loved one who is a fan of dressmaking, quilting and all things sewing related and you can find them over in my shop right here.

Oh and I purchased these adorable resin buttons from Ethel and Joan a while back. Don’t the gorgeous flecks in these handmade buttons look adorable with the lilac fabric!

Take care and I’ll be back soon,
