Me-Made-May’15 roundup

As you may, or may not, know, I’ve been participating in Me-Made-May again, and I thought I would do a roundup of my outfits for the month. Warning, this is one long post and I apologise in advance for some of the dodgy formatting. I’ve spent most of today, on and off, trying to fix […]

Shelby sweat pants

In a triumph of hope over optimism, I made another StyleArc pattern. This time the Shelby sweat pants, which look so good in the drawing. Mine don’t look so good! I used a lovely fleece cotton knit and a rib sample for the contrasting waistband and cuffs. The pattern was interesting. The instructions for the […]
