This is just all sorts of information I regularly use; I don’t think it has any value for anyone but me, but it is very handy for me to have it all stored here.

Comparison of fabric weights.


List of my favourite patterns:


  • The Orla dress from French Navy, woven


  • Liana stretch jeans from Itch to Stitch
  • Tierra woven joggers from itch to stitch
  • Need a jogger pattern as well


  • Linden from Grainline, sweatshirt
  • Grainline Scout for wovens
  • Slim dolman from Halla
  • Sloane from Named, nice detail with the french darts
  • Jalie 2805. V-neck, slim


  • Driftles. Great pockets and general shape


  • Lonetree

Patterns to investigate further:

  • Union st tee
  • Chi town chinos, maybe in something a bit stretchy, so they can be slimmer?
  • Uvita

Hair: Loreal extreme platinum anti yellow (3 or 4 times, maybe less if not colored already), then Schwartzkopf 811 (light ash blonde) for 15-20 minutes to neutralize the yellow/ brass.
