I am also a fan of Hotters Trotters!  Very comfy, and made in the UK.  If you sign up for their emails they often have discounts and ‘three for two’ offers.  If you live near an outlet store you can pick them up at real bargain prices too  ;)

Courtney Top, made using 1 metre of cotton viscose mix from Fabrics Galore aaaaaaaages ago honest  :devil:  It's very dark blue not black, and I had nothing else to go with it for contrast panels.

It's a lovely simple make and I reckon it could be a fave due to the easy slip-on style. This seems to suit me more than button up shirts and the like.

I'm planning another with an almost metre - a remnant - of the same fabric in a different colourway but going to put contrast panels in when I come across something that will work.

Another Courtney top. I get the feeling this is a pattern that will be made time and time again  :loveit: The top is a lovely comfortable wear and in particular I like it with a long-sleeve shirt underneath for colder weather  ;)  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Another entry for the cack-handed sewing club  ;)

This is an SA Adeline dress made in brushed cotton. It's my second one but the first one was made up as the pattern stated so I thought I'd share my own quirks on this one. Instead of two square pockets I used a kangaroo pouch stylee, and instead of long sleeves folded back and cuffed I shortened them and added binding.

The Fay skirt pattern has had a lot of use this summer. After using the sewing machine to make the first skirt, I dusted down the overlocker and used it to make three more skirts and got a much neater finish when attaching the elastic. The only thing I couldn’t work out how to do on the overlocker was to join the ends of the elastic for the waistband so I did that bit by hand.

Love your changes @snoozi soozi . Do you think it would work in a heavier fabric to wear over a ribbed polo neck sweater?

Style arc Molly Top in a Dark Purple jersey meaning you can't really see the details.

I've made some minor changes.
1 - widened the bicep area of the sleeve by curving the lines out and back in again.
2 - shortened the long sleeve by 2 inches, (but only taken a 1/2" hem).
3 - taken a half inch cover hemmed hem on the bottom.
4 - inadvertently made the tuck on the left!
5 - split the tuck into three smaller tucks which I then sewed together from the right side.

@Helen M yes I think you could use a thicker fabric, perhaps not a heavy denim, but it would be lovely in a corduroy. My other one is made in a linen mix and it hangs beautifully  :loveit:
