Hello everyone.  Sorry I’ve been so absent, there’s just a lot going on in my life right now.  In easily condensed bullet point form: I have a wedding to plan for by May next year.  Thankfully I decided to be posh and hired a planner because… I need to make my wedding dress and two bridesmaids dresses by May next year because I decided this is a good idea. I am moving in December. My contract […]

  When I first started sewing, I always wondered what would be that pattern that I would use over and over again.  It’s interesting because when I first started I thought a gorgeous dress (maybe  Colette’s Hawthorn?) would be that pattern, but I was totally wrong.  It was a time when I wasn’t very clear on my style.

Unrelated/kind of related story to the post:  in keeping with my 2014 ‘I will only sew clothes that are my style’ resolution, I recently did a full clean of my wardrobe.  Like full on, three giant bags of clothes have been donated, clean.  I sewed this skirt before I finished that clean, and then after cleaning I found out that I am apparently severely allergic to colour, and then I sort of looked at my […]
