Have you started on your autumn wardrobe yet? Or maybe you already have a wardrobe staple you’re comfortable with? I’m still working on finding mine and I think my newest make really fills a hole I’ve been missing. I don’t wear trousers much, but when I do I tend to go for black ones. The reason for that is my hair color. Since I’ve never colored my hair, it is as black as ever. So since my hair is black, […]

This year was my first time making it to the Dressmakers Ball. Even though it was with a cast. The anticipation of meeting all the people you’ve been following on social media, but not actually talked to, and the fact that I didn’t actually know anyone made the experience both exciting and frightening both at the same time.

If you’ve followed me for a while I’ve made Ginger jeans before and the previous ones have been fine, but there is still fitting issues that made me not wear them regularly.

We browsed through men’s pyjama patterns and this Vogue pattern was the one he was most pleased with. It has a wide collar, pockets and interesting piping details for the dressing gown, and the pyjamas were what pyjamas for a man […]
