Purple Faux Fur Short Jacket

Purple Faux Fur Short Jacket

This luxurious Purple faux fur jacket was made by Pauline using Butterick 6328 pattern, which is illustrated here as overshirts but as you can see works very well in faux fur.

Bright Green Laminated PVC Peplum Skirt

Back when The Great British Sewing Bee were after applicants for the next show (before they went and upset the BBC) Pauline was rather hoping to get on it, and being the kind of person who will happily sew brown tweed and bunny print cotton most of the time she thought she better widen her […]

Watermelon print Cotton A-Line Dress

Watermelon Print Cotton A-Line Dress

Rabbit Print Cotton Shirt with Concealed Buttonhole Band

Pauline made this sweet bunny print shirt with printed quilting weight cotton. It is a Butterick pattern (6324) that has minimal/confusing instructions (it is clearly the instructions at fault and not the readers!), so Pauline came a bit unstuck working out how to do the concealed buttonhole band, but she got there in the end […]
