It’s that time again! World Book Day 2020! This year it was a Vocabulary Parade – where you could choose a word and appropriate costume… Eleanor chose ‘dauntless’ to describe her favourite Dragon Quest XI character, Veronica. I had so much fun making this cute costume for her. Click here to see more pictures!
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…
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.
This week I have been sewing orders for Superhero Capes and Masks. But I took a couple of evenings out to make 2 versions of the Sew Over it Eve Dress. The first is ‘posher’ with a long dipped hem, the second is more school run friendly! The fabric was so lovely I couldn’t resist! More pictures and information here.
I have spent the last couple of days making a World War II costume! I used several different pattern as well as adding some details myself. I’m pleased with the results – I was surprised that I was able to order a pattern, cut and sew a beret in 30 minutes! More pictures and information here.
Inspired by Me Made May (and in an effort to finally sew up some of the lovely summery fabrics in my stash before winter sets in!) I have been sewing more clothes… I had a spare couple of evenings between orders so I made a Bettine Dress by Tilly & The Buttons… More information and pictures here.
