    you are awesome! I love all the stuff you’ve made. It has inspired me to bust out some more dresses and a coat or two. Thanks!

    Hi Lauren, I just stumbled across your blog and I absolutely love your closet! So much colour and inspiring ideas! Makes me want to drop everything and go sew right now! Thank you!

    So great :)

    You’re an inspiration! Great workmanship and attention to detail. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi there, accidentally stumbled on your site – and love it!
    would you mind of I asked your sewing advice on something. I can sew (a bit)….guess am an ambitious novice. Have a black tie event to go to and can’t quite find the dress of my dreams. Have found an image (dress have seen in a fashion magazine)…but can’t find matching dress pattern – might be a mix of 2 patterns type job….what should I do?

    thanks so much appreciate any suggestions – happy to forward the image so you can see what I mean

    • LLADYBIRD November 1, 2013 at 8:06 am #

      You can totally frankenpattern a few patterns together to get a specific look :) Just be warned that you may have to adjust pieces to get them to fit each other (narrowing the side seams of a skirt to get it to fit a bodice, for example). I would definitely make a muslin first, just to be sure that the pieces work together.

  14. Jill December 11, 2013 at 5:26 pm #

    Inspirational.. in the phase at the moment where i have barely started on a new hobby, and therefore are convinced i will be a sewing genius… probably should actually go sew instead of just admiring your awesome work :)

    • Rick December 18, 2013 at 11:48 pm #

      Wow! You are prolific!

  15. surfjewels December 30, 2013 at 6:11 pm #

    Loved having a look through all your makes, you’ve made some cute dresses and nice items :)


  16. angebabe46 April 1, 2014 at 2:55 am #

    Wow ! What a great range of outfits, love them all. Just getting back into sewing after years of not doing anything apart from altering shop bought!!!! I love knitting too. I have a bit more time on my hands now so hopefully my wardrobe will grow with my own creations!!
