It’s World Book day 2018 and it’s snowing outside! Here are the costumes for this year… Molly Moon and Hedwig the Owl from Harry Potter.
I had lots of fun making them! Click here for tons more information and lovely pictures…
Now to clear all the fur and feathers from my Sewing Room!
I’ve been so busy with Christmas orders at Dotty Owl but I had to take a little time aside to make a 1970s outfit – required for a Christmas Show!
I sewed up some flared trousers using suiting fabric and a jumper to match from authentic 1970’s fabric… Read more and see lots of pictures here…
I have just finished work on some alterations – after I had a request to transform a Little Green Radicals Snowsuit (18-24 months) into a more practical and wearable coat. Click here to see more about how I got on and the extras I sewed with the offcuts!
Last week I finally sewed up my first Rosie Dress by Sew Over It – I have had this pattern for a while and was excited to make my version. I had to make some adjustments but I’m pleased that all the hard work has paid off… It’s 1950’s style and vintage… more information and pictures here…
I have been really busy at Dotty Owl these past few weeks – but I was so pleased with how this dress hack turned out (made in the summer) I couldn’t resist adding it to Dotty Owl. It combines a skirt section from an Oliver Bonas dress with a bodice that I created from the Megan Dress by Tilly & the Buttons. The result is this lovely dress for a friend. More information and pictures can be found here.
Hooray for another Pleated Zippered Pouch! – I love this fabric soooo much! This was another end of term teacher gift… I couldn’t resist adding a Swarovski heart button for extra sparkle!
I hope you like it. More information (and previous versions) here.
I sewed these cushions for end of term teacher gifts. They can be personalised with children’s special artwork – or anything else you would like added! The other cushion shown here was a gift and I added the photograph of the sheep to the heart.
