Another Top Done


Woohoo! I'm so thrilled that I managed to finish another clergy top today. This one is made out of grey linen, and I made it FROM SCRATCH myself. I began by measuring myself and creating a "block". A block is a bodice pattern that is exactly my own measurements, and it forms the basis of …

My Sewing Day


I had a day of sewing today, which went hand in hand with my intention to spend time with God ahead of my ordination this coming weekend. You may know if you follow my blog regularly that I have been sewing my own clergy clothes for me to wear when I am doing the more …

Pride Comes Before Unstitching


I've been getting on with quite a bit of sewing recently, and I started to get a bit cocky with my little self today. I finished off a clergy top that I began earlier this week, and then I cut out and sewed together another one from the same pattern. This is the one that …

New Project


It's not long now until I'll be wearing clerical clothes and it's time I stepped up my game and started making the couple of tops I promised myself at the top of the year. I began with one today, using a pattern for a clerical t-shirt from "Sew Me Something". This is what it will …

Bank Holiday Monday


It's the May Day Bank Holiday here in the UK, and in true British style, after a month or so of perfect Spring weather, it has been freezing cold and absolutely bucketing it down for most of the day. We would usually try to get out for the day today, as today is a day …

Hat Mk II


I've developed a bit of a passion for sewing recently, fuelled mainly by my desire to create my own clergy clothes for later in the year. I have successfully completed a brace of tunics - and worn them both out in public - and I made myself a baker-boy cap a couple of weeks ago …

Day 19, Jan 19: Baker Boy Hat


You may know from a couple of earlier posts that one of my aims this year is to build some sewing skills so I can eventually make my own clergy wear later this year. I have made a couple of tops for myself and numerous face-masks for the family to use while out and about, …

Day 11, Jan 11: Another Garment


I promised myself I would make some clothes towards my new "clergy wardrobe" this year, and I've been working hard over the last couple of days to make myself another tunic using the Perfect Tunic pattern from "Wardrobe by Me". I managed to cut this one out better than the last one, and my sewing-in-a-straight-line …

Day 1 – Jan 1


So here we are - we made it through 2020 and arrived on our knees at the threshhold of 2021. I've noticed on social media a general tone of "good riddance" to 2020 which strikes me as a bit sad. I realise that for millions (billions) around the world, the covid virus has had such …
