So, this is supposed to be the page about me. Well, as this is a sewing blog I’ll share what I like about sewing and fashion. I like Vogue and Simplicity patterns with tailored lines. I always go for natural fabrics (silk, cotton or wool) and prefer single colours to anything too vivid (or pastel!). I love a good bargain and will happily spend hours in my local fabric shop finding the perfect buy.
Since I started this blog I’ve worked my way from complete beginner’s sewing course through to city and guilds level 3. I am now happily venturing out in to the realms of sewing where my interests take me, featuring projects from the small and tiny (I have a era love for making little girl’s dresses) through to large and expansive (a double bed sized quilt being my biggest).
En route I am trying to pick up new skills and confidence, plus incorporate some of the things I learned from my dressmaking courses in to actual projects. By writing about what I have done it also helps me look back on what I have achieved. Being something of a perfectionist it is easy to see what you have yet to master instead of what you have already gained.
