Desert Island Sewing

I say, what inclement weather we're having in the UK at the moment. Snowy, freezing and just plain horrible. So it's a gigantic stroke of luck that today of all days, Scruffy Badger has unleashed her fifth sewing castaway onto her Desert Island - ME!!!! If you fancy escaping the UK snow for a bit of tropical sunshine - and discovering what my favourite sewing patterns are whilst you're at it - then hop on over to her blog and read all about it here.  Thank you Winnie, it was an absolute pleasure to be involved in such a great series.

And whilst I have your attention, if you need a new blog reader once Google Reader is no more, you can follow my blog on Bloglovin' here. I confess to being a complete Luddite when it comes to all things technical, but Bloglovin' tells me I also have to 'claim my blog' via a blog post like this:

<a href="">Follow my blog with Bloglovin</a>

I haven't a clue what this means, but I'm claiming it anyway!  

Have a wonderful weekend everybody. x  


  1. Hi Jane, I enjoyed reading your desert island sewing post. I have a plea - if you decide to make another McCall's shirt dress, would it be possible to post some instructions on how you do the collar? I have made this dress previously. It fitted well and all was going swimmingly until I got to the collar. I couldn't make it work, and the dress ended being screwed up in a ball and shoved into a carrier bag in a fit of rage. Thank you!

  2. Funnily enough, I HAD planned to make another one this summer! I can't remember the collar being a nightmare when I first made it, although I've just had a look at the collar now and it's not the neatest finish... I'll take some photos as I'm going along and if it all looks like it makes sense I'll post them as instructions. x
