    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 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

      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.

    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 🙂

      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 🙂

    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!!

      By the way I’m from Wales, United Kingdom.

    Thank you for letting me lurk your closet! You have beautiful clothes.

    Hi! I am Laura and I live near Atlanta, Georgia. I am so glad I tripped over your site tonight. I’ve been beginning sewing for years but am wanting to step up my game so I will be coming back often to watch tutorials etc. I have family in Mt. Juliet, TN. You are close to my twin in size and shape also.

    My partner and I stumbled over here by a different website and thought I may as well check
    things out. I like what I see so now i am following you.
    Look forward to finding out about your webb page again.

  20. Abigail July 10, 2015 at 7:14 am #

    Okay, including all the other years, that is one big closet. (And a lot of clothes!) I’m impressed.

  21. Sandra December 31, 2015 at 8:24 am #

    Wow! increible armario. Me sorprende todas las bellas piezas que has cosido. Espero poder enfocarme en mis proyectos de costura para poder coser tanto como deseo durante el 2016. Tu blog y costura son inspiradores.
