Here’s a round up of all the things I’ve been sewing this month. It’s been a bumper month and I’m often asked, where do I find the time. This month I genuinely have no idea how I got all this done… But I know I did because I was given a diary at Christmas and…… Continue reading My February Sewing
On my YouTube channel there’s a replay available of a livestream I made at the weekend. I was assembling a PDF pattern ready to make a toile for a wedding dress that I am making for a friend. Her wedding is in August but we’re hoping to get the dress done in the next few…… Continue reading Livestream 7th March 2020 – assembling PDF patterns
I’ve been talking about my favourite things for February 2020 in my latest video. I’ve been doing favourites videos for over a year now and they’re one of my favourites to make.

And I had so much fun wearing it and dancing the night away at my friend’s wedding this last weekend. I’ve made a video talking about how I chose the fabric and constructed the dress.

In my latest YouTube video I’m talking about how I researched patterns try and find something that had all the features that I’d picked out during my epic try-on of all the dresses last week.

I uploaded a new YouTube video today. This one has been a while in the planning because it’s all tied up with a big project I’ve been working on for myself, for about a month now.
