I’m just at the start of my journey sewing with my new overlocker and working with knit/stretch fabrics but here are a few of my favourite patterns and clothes for children, and in particular boys, although I am open to requests for both boys and girls.

Harem pants

When my son was born I found it difficult to buy unique and interesting unisex baby clothes as we didn’t find out he was a boy until he arrived. The months after he was born I realised that it’s difficult to find cute boy clothes compared to the wide choice for girls so these harem pants are perfect for both genders, whilst being practical too.

RRP £13-17

T-shirts and Long Sleeve Tops

One of my favourite patterns is for a slim fit top for Harry, which I started making using my husband’s old t-shirts so if you want me to upcycle old clothes or treasured items then please just send me a message. I have since become a bit addicted to buying knit/stretch jersey and have a large collection ready to be sewn up.

RRP £17.50-25

Rompers and Dungarees

I can’t resist making dungarees/romper for Harry as I think they are adorable on toddlers, especially boys who seem to have less variety of cute clothes and it’s a good change to jeans/trousers and a top. These harem rompers are designed to be a loose fit to allow for lots of movement with adventurous toddlers, fitting my ‘practical but cute’ category, and are available as long or short legs.

RRP £20-35

Hoodies and Jumpers

As we enter the winter months in the northern hemisphere it was time to make some warmer clothes for my little man and a hoodie is a perfect way to keep him cosy and it means I can experiment with colour combinations. Here are some examples of various hoodie patterns I have used so if you have a particular fave then please let me know.

RRP £20-35


My daughter spent much of her early months in the British cold, rainy weather and sleepsuits are so pracitcal but also keep her warm because I don’t need to put socks on etc that are likely to get lost. These sleepsuits have a curve on the front which is a design detail I like, but also means that it’s easy to get her legs in and out because the snaps finish in the centre at the top.

RRP £22-30


All capes are made to order and sizes vary from 6-12 months to 6-7 years, made in my little corner of Yorkshire with a ithinksew pattern.

RRP £30-45
