Jessica Dunstan lives in Cape Town, South Africa and is a Civil Engineer by day and an avid sewer by night. She began sewing at 5 years old, creating all the latest trends for her dolls and has not stopped since.
The Sew Weekly began as Mena Trott's attempt to document the process of sewing all of her own clothes in 2010. In 2011, four other contributors (Debi Fry, Adey Lim, Veronica Darling & Sarah Gabbart) joined her and for 52 weeks, they sewed based on a particular weekly theme. In 2012, The Sew Weekly became a much larger group blog with over 130 contributors sewing along each week.
