About

Postcard from Suzy Magazine

After a few years of making slightly wonky patchwork cushions and bags with absolutely no use, I made my first dress when I was 13 and since then my sewing has been focused almost entirely on dressmaking. Making my own clothes is something that I love to do, it's challenging and interesting but also incredibly relaxing. I love the challenge of picking up a piece of fabric and creating a wearable garment from it and as my sewing has improved I've begun to enjoy drafting my own patterns as well as using commercial ones.
As well as dressmaking, I love English Paper Piecing and those projects make the occasional appearance on my blog too.

I've been featured in two national sewing magazines, Suzy Magzine and Sew Now.  I also enjoy writing blog posts for other people as well as for myself, primarily Minerva Crafts and Craft Cotton Co. The highlight of my sewing journery was in March 2019, where I won the 'Upcycle' category in the Knitting & Stitching Show dressmaking competition which I wrote about here.

I hope you enjoy reading this blog which has been a place for me to keep track of my sewing projects and look back on previous makes for the past few years.
