15 November 11:47:59 Thank you for all your love and well wishes for a speedy return of my bike 🚴🙏🏼Today I am wearing my sassy owl to cheer myself up!
14 November 19:04:31 Today I was robbed of my chance to say farewell to my humble lime green steed that has served me for over 20 years! We ve cycled all over France together, taken countless trips to Lockinge, tackled Bathwick hill and more recently the daily commute along Banbury road. I hope the man that took her at 12:20 today is pleased with himself. You ve broken this little girl s heart 💔He didn t even leave my Bart Simpson bell 😭#benifitsofbeingfullygrownbytheageofeight#welcometooxford
12 November 11:18:56 and... the back view, to show you all the matched up fishies along the back seam 🐟
12 November 11:08:25 I made a matching shawl using the border of the lace. A last minute addition but a much needed one!
12 November 09:38:12 The flying fish dress 🐟 at the party. You may remember that I deliberated about that collar for so long! Thank you to everyone who voted 😊 @sewoveritlondon #soiroisedress Fabric: Voile lace from @middlesex.textiles
12 November 08:52:56 I took the flying fish dress for a serious spin on the dance floor last night. The bodice is the @sewoveritlondon #rosiedress with a pleated skirt and this fish has bones! My first boned dress and I am really pleased with the fit 👏🏻👌🏼Fabric is a voile lace from @middlesex.textiles 😍
09 November 13:43:44 I ve definitely been know to enjoy a refreshment whilst sewing. I embroidered gold thread and tiny red beads all over my dress for the #dressmakersball meaning it came everywhere with me for a week! Embroidering over breakfast with a cup of tea or at the pub with a G&T! These are pretty standard accompaniments at home too! #bpsewvember
09 November 08:11:01 I ve have all the materials to make myself a new winter coat but no pattern of my dreams as of yet ... @byhandlondon I m looking at you 👀#rumanacoat Electric blue wool and peach skin lining from @sewoveritlondon #bpsewvember
09 November 08:08:27 Summer doesn t get better than this ^ a maxi dress, a sun set and a stroll through the countryside to an alfresco dinner #provence #bpsewvember
09 November 07:50:25 The Birmingham rag market is a treasure trove of bargains! Throw back to #sewbrum2017 and @rhiannonbrum swooning over the shells 🐚😘 #bpsewvember #bargain
09 November 07:42:23 In 2014 I organised this beautiful lady s hen do. Rather than pay for a garter making class I borrowed my great grandmother s hand cranking singer to do it myself. From this I jumped straight into dress making and after a couple of @byhandlondon #elisalexdress for myself I decide I d also make the lead Hen a Hen dress and Bride to be sash! I worked the singer hard for another 6months until one day my wonderful man @weareduet surprised me with a new electric one. I ve barely stopped for breath since! #bpsewvember #originstory
