What I've Been Loving in February
Wearing my favourite make of the year so far - my Sew Over It 'Doris' dress!
I can't believe how quickly February went, I am so not ready to start March! I was really pleased with how well received my first post in this new blog series was, so I'm very happy to be back with another. If you missed my January's favourites, you can visit the post HERE.

Basically I'm just sharing with you some things I've been loving, usually from the sewing world, over the past month. February went by so quickly for me and then I ended up getting sick and had to spend nearly a week pretty much in bed, which was SO frustrating. But it didn't stop me from dreaming of Spring sewing and project planning, and here are some of my highlights...
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

This month, regardless of the snow falling outside right now, has made me look ahead to Spring, although this adorable stormy teacup pincushion better represents the weather! My sewing pattern review for the classic Butterick B6318 dress finally went up (see my post HERE) and it made me lust after pretty dresses and florals! But I don't want to repeat my old sewing habits and sew poorly timed makes.

With the release of Tilly and the Buttons new book 'Stretch' I've been planning some makes for that. I'm loving constellation prints right now and I couldn't resist THIS fabric in cosy jersey from the amazing Spoonflower (on that note I have some exciting new coming in March!). I'll certainly be using my beloved walking foot to make sure I'm sewing jersey like a pro.

Between working and being sick, my month took a downhill slide, but March is looking good and hopefully things will get back on track. Besides I have a nail appointment coming up and that always means choosing a fun design, I think I'll be embracing florals to try and tempt Spring to actually start! Here's my fave nail art account to follow right now.

Thanks for reading, pinups!
