This is a fashion blog. And a dressmaking and pattern cutting blog. And it is probably going to be the home of the confessions of a fabric addict. It is definitely the home of a sewaholic! I tend to get stuck into just making things in the vain attempt to make my fabric stash pile smaller, but I don’t always get satisfaction from it.
So I am slowing down, starting from scratch. It is undoubtably faster to sew a pattern that someone else has created, and fixed, but that wont do my pattern cutting skills any good! So I am going to do it right, choose the pattern and the fabric and make things that are unique, individual and ultimately – satisfying. Hopefully!
No commercial patterns will be harmed for this project. All patterns will be made by me from blocks generated mostly from Winnifred Aldrich’s Metric Pattern Cutting, and the Menswear book. I will undoubtably still use commercial patterns to get a little speed hit in, for those projects you can find me on Burdastyle. To see what is inspiring me, pop onto Pinterest.
