Welcome to the 2023 round up!! I absolutely LOVE seeing posts and pics of your makes, it brings me so much joy to see how you use my patterns to create beautiful things. So many of your makes have inspired my own work and it feels like a really lovely eco-system of people creating and sharing ideas together.
If you've followed for a while you might have noticed that I stopped our Monthly Inspiration Boards recently. Instagram has unfortunately changed the search function of the hashtags which makes it impossible to find the most recent posts under each hashtag.
I'm really struggling to find a way to keep the board going but for now I'm really happy to share makes from the year that I already had saved. They're a lovely bunch.
I truly miss sharing these boards so I hope a way to continue them will present itself in the new year (special hashtags and secret accounts aren't working).
I hope you enjoy flicking through these beautiful makes and maybe they'll spark an idea or two. I managed to find a picture of every pattern - it feels really nice to share such a full view of the range as we come to the end of 2023.
I'll be back before the 31st to reflect on the year and tee you up for a big January. But in the meantime love and good wishes from London.

And to round off I thought I'd share 3 of my favourite looks from the year.
A Potters Jacket in waxed cotton and the Spring Trousers in a heavy brushed twill.
How much blue is too much blue? The Worker Trousers, Rib Sweater and Unisex Shirt layered together.
And feeling summery in the Cara Top and Spring Trouser shorts!
