…is my dressmaking dummy. She came with the name.
I started sewing my own clothes as a teenager – mostly by buying things from charity shops and hacking them about a bit. I got out of the habit at university (followed by a wedding, first house and first job), so my creative side got archived for a few years… and I really missed it. In late 2010, I set up the sewing machine again, and gradually started filling up my wardrobe with handmade clothes. Now, sewing is my regular creative escape from the day job, along with sharing stories with other sewing bloggers and readers.
