Coming Soon... The Bastion Culottes sewing pattern!

Thursday, May 28, 2020

It's nearly new pattern release time! And this time, I'm adding a pair of 'pants' into my sewing pattern offerings.

I say 'pants' because they're secret pants, disguised in skirt form... If you like 1940s sailor pants, 1930s beach pyjamas and A-line skirts, you'll love the Bastion Culottes.

Sign up to my newsletter before 8pm Monday 1st June NZDT to be the first to see them AND gain access to the Subscriber-only discount.

See you next week!!

Me Made May 2020

Sunday, May 3, 2020
And just like that, May has rolled around again, along with Me Made May 2020.

It's a very different looking May to this time last year - I had a little 3 month old baby and life was relatively slow (as far as babies are concerned). Fast forward to today and my 3 month old is a walking 14month old with her own opinions, Baby number One turns 5 (and should be starting school, but won't be due to COVID-19) and the world is grappling with something we couldn't fathom a year ago, let alone any time really...

I wear me mades everyday of the year anyway and so I'm not going to promise daily outfit photos this month, especially when I know full well that they just won't happen with time restraints (maybe next year...?).  I've also had various test garments for future pattern releases in high rotation, meaning I can't really take daily photos anyway, because that would be giving them all away! But I definitely hope to share the odd outfit.

My big goal for Me Made May this year is to finish one of my knitting projects. I'm stuck on sleeve island for 3 projects, and if I can finish at least one this month, I'll be very happy. We're heading into winter down here, so more cosy cardigans will be a welcome addition to my winter Me-made wardrobe.

'I, Jen, pledge to finish my Populux Cardigan (and possibly my Sandy Cardigan) and take the odd outfit photo throughout May 2020'

If you're not sure what Me Made May is, head on over to Zoe's blog to find out more about it.

Happy May everyone!
