World Book Day 2018 – Molly Moon & Hedwig, Harry Potter’s Owl

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!

Megan Dress Hack – Tilly & The Buttons

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.



Phew! It’s the final week of Me Made May – including several extra days taking us up to the 31st… for now I will be enjoying taking a break from having my picture taken (whilst poorly, in the rain, with goose bumps, too early in the morning etc etc) and mostly wearing ‘Ready to Wear’ 🙂  I’m sure I’ll be adding some more items very soon to Dotty Owl though – so if you’ve read my other Me Made May posts – thank you for staying with me through all these clothes and watch this space for more dressmaking and re-fashioning in the future!
