Once in a while, I find a pattern that just fits the family ( the girls).

I procrastinated over the Groove dress pattern, bought it and was never happier. When making something for Larissa I have to be careful not to buy all these cute kiddies patterns floating around, unless I want to pattern hack, reconstruct ect…

The groove dress comes in children, teen and for the ladies so BAM girl I just buy for teens and ladies, but the teens was to small at the bust and waist measurements, so size 12/14 for ladies it was, very easy to grade between two sizes and chop off the appropriate length for her,

First Groove dress was a high low version with round neck and short sleeves, fabric is a light sweatshirting from Higgs and Higgs.

The second Groove dress I made was the straight hem (Swing version)with scoop neck and short sleeves. Fabric was picked out by Larissa from Minerva Crafts.


I have one happy 10 year old, I have my sewing groove back, so thank you……. Continue reading


A Little refashion

My white T

So i have this white t shirt, I must say I love it, shop bought a while ago.  When I unpacked it for summer this year, noticed it had a couple of small holes in it…… What to do?   Rummage through my scraps and refashion a little bit. Found some Chambray, grabbed my heart stencil and appliqued a little love.  A good wash and iron and its back on my body as usual.
