What are your favourite sewing / fashion blogs: and many many more



I think about sewing fantastic dresses and coats, but mostly I sew boring grey school trousers for my eldest son (who is 6), and strange fancy dress items for all 3 boys... well that is what life feels like at the moment! I started a blog to keep a visual record of what I have sewn and some tips to remind myself how to sew something better the next time around!

  1. It’s beautiful and very inspiring. I’ve bought a Vogue coat pattern to go with some brass buttons and a silk patterned lining I already have. Have yet to get some wool coating … maybe I will now …

  2. Beautifully made and the lining is gorgeous

  3. Wow! This is gorgeous and the lining is too cute :D
