This year has been slow 🙁 and there has been a shift in focus for me and The Maker’s Tribe. In addition to TMT, I am also a full time teacher and mother - which is a lot to juggle. I have come to the realisation that I just dont have time to do it all. Whilst it will always be my dream to open my own space for creative workshops, for now, i am placing this dream on hold. This account and my website will remain open, they will just focus more on my personal sewing and everyday happenings. If that’s something you’re keen to read then keep following me 🌻 in fact, I have a new blog post up right now 👌 please check it out ♥️
#2018makenine time! All of these patterns are already in my stash. A big goal of mine this year is to buy less and sew more. ✂️👗✂️👗✂️

Had a little mini break and a wander round the #weribeemansion sculpture garden - this one looks like giant knitting! I made this #ogdencamidress last year (ever blogged or instagrammed wearing it I don't think) and it is still my go-to hot weather dress. Fabric is cotton voile from @spotlightstores.
Who else will be wearing an Ogden Cami at Christmas? Just finished my Ogden Cami lengthened to a Dress with asymmetrical hem in a crinkle rayon. I made a rope strap feature for something different, although have made it easy enough if I want to change it for a plain black strap in the future. #ogdencamidress#ogdencamidresshack#ogdencami#truebias @truebias
Day 4 #owop17 (One week one pattern) This is an #ogdencami dress by @truebias the fabric is a cotton stretch denim which shows that this pattern really works with all fabrics! I find it wonderful for many everyday outfits. Thanks to @sewoveritlondon and @creative_ind_ for sponsoring today's prizes and @sewisfaction for hosting this challenge!
Day 2 #owop17 (One week one pattern). Here is an #ogdencami dress I sewed recently, pattern by @truebias . It's made from a viscose paisley print and I added a strip of navy lace to the hem. I shortened the cami and added an a line skirt which created a channel for the elastic waist.
This is my Mara Hoffman inspired Ogden Cami Dress by True Bias. Rayons mostly from Cali Fabrics. My original plan was to make it reversible but the skirt felt too bulky so I ended up with 2 dresses. I'd make some changes if I were to do it again but I think that's it for me. Really had fun with this. @truebias @califabrics #ogdencamidresshack#ogdencamidress#ogdencamihack#ogdencami#califabrics
