Squeak! These little pyjamas make me so happy for many reasons! They are 100% upcycled – mostly from a duvet cover my mam made, from fabric my nana bought (so its probably at least 15 years old).

The skirt can have pockets or double layers, ribbons, pom poms and applique. I have provided here a skirt tutorial for a very basic skirt that you…… Continue reading How to make the easiest cutest skirt ever (Even if you’re a sewing newbie)

I made it in a beautiful viscose jersey with lovely drape. Here’s what it’s supposed to look like: And here’s my…… Continue reading Megan Nielsen Briar t-shirt / sweater
