Margot pajama bottoms!

Yeah!!! Finally got round to completing the Margot Pajama bottoms from Love at First Stitch using my fab cat stretchy jersey fabric from Fabric Land in Bristol whilst on our hols a couple of weeks ago.

To say I'm a sewing novice I handled the stretch of this fabric real well after getting the tension and stitch length sorted lol!

The jersey gives the pj's a nice drape to them and uber comfy!! What is even better that they fit my short legs perfectly as I adjusted the pattern to fit me whilst tracing it out.

I'm now sat chilling in them they are just fab!!

Happy sewing!

Bow Belt!



Yay! I'm getting back into this sewing lark! Now I've made Bow Belt from 
Tilly's Love at First Stitch Book! 


I'd thought I'd go for the neon yellow cotton fabric to go with my Navy Duck Dress for a bit of quirk. 




If you haven't heard of Tilly and her amazing yet simple patterns head on over to 
Tilly's Blog you won't be disappointed!

Ta Ta for now!!
