First things first, I’m declaring my absolute love for this pattern! Oh my god what a fabulous pattern it is – everyone should make some sort of version of the Halifax Hoodie by Hey June patterns.

She has also just launched her own…… Continue reading April #SewMyStyle2018 Marigold Maternity Hack by Tilly and the Buttons
