I'm sure I'm not the only one who wanders into shops, picks up a dress and thinks 'I know the perfect pattern for that' or 'I can totally make that!'. And that's what my new blog series is all about!

I've sewn a couple of items recently inspired by high street designs, so I've already got two posts lined up with ideas for lots more over the Summer. I'll be sharing my first post this Sunday all about how to recreate this cute jersey dress with ruffle sleeves from Joanie Clothing.
The Sew Your Own theme is also great for when you love a highstreet design but hate the fabric or the print. Which is something I did with the dress above. I really didn't need another stripe dress in my wardrobe but I did have this beautiful floral jersey that I picked up on my recent fabric shopping trip to Birmingham (watch my fabric haul idea from this trip HERE) and knew I wanted to whip it into a chic every day jersey dress.
Here's another look at what's to come:
(and who doesn't need a sassy slash neck jersey top!)
