I have been pretty busy at the moment with studying and I thought that this weekend I would take a little break from it all and do something that I enjoy, (apart from blogging of course).

As some of you may know, I enjoy sewing and dressmaking, and although I am by no means an expert, I am definitely improving the more I do. I particularly love making clothes for my little great-nieces and have made quite a few outfits, for them, especially in the summer months. Here are some of my projects on Pinterest. 

Last Christmas I  managed to make a skirt and trousers in fun Christmas fabric. You can see little Molly modelling her skirt that I made.


I didn’t know what to make this year but I wanted it to be a little bit more adventurous than what I had done before, as well as something practical.

Mr Grump was busy watching the rugby so I cracked on with it. It took a little longer than I expected, but just after midnight I had finished my project and was pleased with the results. They are not perfect, but they do look cosy and warm!
