Grainline Studio - 11005 Linden Sweatshirt
In my search for the perfect sweatshirt pattern I may have found it. The Linden is that slouchy sweatshirt you want to wear everywhere you can get away with. I think this will end up being a hang about the house top but I'd like to make some more that look a little more fancy. I got these fabrics... more...

Simplicity - 1419 Misses' Dress and Jacket
Being a primary school teacher has some big pros when it comes to clothing. I can get away with all kinds of prints and Easter is the perfect time to wear a Rabbit Dress.

About Me

I love the idea of creating my own clothes. I love the moment just before I start sewing. It's a blank page and nothing has gone wrong! I also know that whatever mistake I make, I will always learn... more
