Simplicity Pattern 2812

Monday, September 24th, 2018

I made this lovely rose print dress coat for the Telstra Business Awards Media night this year from Simplicity Pattern 2812.

I purchased a cotton stretch sateen fabric from my local Spotlight store in Geelong.

I was really pleased with the result, received many positive comments and it’s fantastic to wear!

Check it out below.

Simplicity Pattern 1420

Sunday, April 8th, 2018

I made a beautiful dress for my daughter Jacqueline from

Simplicity Pattern 1420

for her to wear to her friends wedding in Sorrento over the weekend.

I made it from a stretch cotton sateen fabric that I bought while shopping at Spotlight.

I’ve been wanting to make a dress from this pattern for ages and I’m extremely happy with the result!

Check it out below!

Kwik Sew Pattern K3604

Friday, March 16th, 2018

Today’s sewing inspiration is from finding a gorgeous fox printed fabric while shopping at Spotlight. I thought it would be just perfect for a new set of PJ’s each for my granddaughter Poppy and grandson Felix.

I made the PJ bottoms from Kwik Sew Pattern K3604, purchased a t-shirt and embellished it to match!

Check them out in the video below:

Fabric purchased at Spotlight


I find this a really quick and easy way to make a new set of PJ’s for the kids!

I hope you enjoyed my kids PJ sewing inspiration.
