Twelve Days of Christmas: Day 12. Something special for yourself.

For the second year, we're bringing you a bunch of ideas for handmade Christmas gifts and also, lovely gifts for the makers in your life. (Or, gifts for you to hint loudly at with your loved ones!)

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me... uninterrupted sewing time for myself!

(Hey, we can all dream, right?) In any case, 'tis the season to wear something a bit special and make every occasion more festive. Here's a couple of things for inspiration:

Liberty of London Tana Lawn, 'Daniel DJ' print, made into the Deer and Doe Aubepine dress (pattern available instore or by phone or email).

Nothing beats the feeling of Liberty Tana Lawn on a summer's day, especially in a dress with a bit of 'swish' factor.

Hemp/Silk blend Charmeuse in a vintage jacket pattern, just awaiting the perfect vintage button.
We are delighted to report that this Hemp/Silk washed beautifully (warm delicate machine cycle, liquid wool wash), line dried and is lovely to sew with. It also takes a hot, steamy iron very happily. Of course, we had to sample this new fabric so we could advise you, our lovely customers, on its properties! You're most welcome.

So go ahead, don't you deserve something special just for you?

Thank you for reading our Twelve Days of Christmas series for 2014. We're open today (Saturday) 12 - 4 and Monday the 22nd December 10am - 4pm, then closed until January 14th, although the online store will stay open throughout. We wish you all a wonderful, safe and happy festive season and new year.

- Jane & Fiona xx
