I love clothes, shoes and handbags and although learning to sew when I was 7years old, I have only just realised what a great way to relax it is…… Getting a tailors dummy meant that I have almost graduated from a wonky dressmaker to a perfect fit!
I am so glad I had the opportunity to learn to sew and as a Deputy Headteacher in a primary school I have a group of children I am passing on my skills to. They are ten years old and sewing hooded ponchos at the moment and they are so proud of them! Children ❤️sewing!
When I am choosing what to sew I love to look at fashions on the High Street and create my own with a vintage twist.
I started my blog to keep a record of what I make but hopefully see my progress! However, I love blogging in the sewing community as I realised it is a great way to talk about sewing! Everyone else gets bored!
I have discovered that to not look ‘homemade’ I should take my time and aim for perfection. Great fabric quality is also essential for the best outcome!
Thanks for reading my blog!
