Sun Skirt Tutorial

I’ve just added my first sewing tutorial video to YouTube, showing you how to make this sun circle skirt!

To make this skirt you’ll need 2 yards of the sun fabric I designed for this project from my Spoonflower shop, I’ve used their Sport Lycra, but you can also use their Modern Jersey or Organic Cotton Knit.

I’ve also designed similar fabric with earth and the moon, which are both available to order from my Spoonflower shop.

The sun and moon skirts are both available handmade to order from my Etsy shop if you’d rather I make them for you!

Goodbye Minions

It’s always a sad day when one of my favourite fabrics gets discontinued. It’s happened before with Marvel, Star Wars, and liquorice allsorts, amongst a few others. It’s especially sad when the discontinued fabric is one of the most popular. I have dresses, skirts, bags and scarves made with this fabric, and it’ll be very sad to see them go. 

But before I have to say goodbye forever, I’ll order as much of this fabric as financially possible (shout out to my credit card!) so I can keep these going for as long as I can.

They’re all available to order from my Etsy shop, get them here before it’s too late:

For Luke

An old friend took his own life recently, and as I had nothing funeral appropriate to wear, I made myself a black velvet circle skirt.
I’ve always been more of a doer than a talker, so in an effort to feel slightly better about something so tragic, I’ve decided to sell these skirts and include a 20% donation to PAPYRUS UK, a charity which aims to prevent suicide in young people. By raising money and awareness for such a wonderful charity, hopefully I can help to prevent at least one person from being in my friend Luke’s position, and countless more in his friends’ and family’s position.

The skirt is handmade to order in sizes UK 6-36, its £35 including a £7 donation to charity: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/247255222/black-velvet-circle-skirt-includes

Halloween

I know it’s a bit early, but I’m already trying to decide who I want to be for Halloween this year. Last year I was Snow White: 

  
I made the dress myself using velvet for the bodice, and satin for the skirt and sleeves. If anyone is planning on going as Snow White this year, these are available made to order in sizes 6-36 from my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/208490201/princess-dress-cosplay
