About Me

My photo
Starting from a young age I have always loved clothes. My mum would put me in one set of clothes in the morning and by the evening I would have changed at least 5 times. My sisters would moan and carry on but it was important that I had a different look all the time. I would always make sure my church outfit was accessorised and my shoes shined. My passion has developed and since opening my dressmaking business I have a sweet spot for amazing fabrics. I hope to pass the tradition on to my own little sweetheart one day!

Project #3 finished from my Dressmaking classes

Today I finally finished the bais binding on my frill vest. I had been working on this all month at my Dressmaking classes that I have been taking in my local area. Initially I thought that the frill was too gathered but I think its ok now. I have some images that you may want to check out but my computer is have a little melt down, I will post soon. The inside is fully lined with a textured silky red & black fabric. Will definately be wearing this one with great pride. Starting my first shirt on Thursday night class so with the drafted pattern complete and the fabric ready to go, should be interesting to see the outcome. I will keep you posted.

Gorgeous inspiration for the weekend

Today I have been wedding magazine crazy. There just seems to be something about weddings and the happiness that surrounds them. After dropping by the brides place on Sunday I could not get over how exciting I felt on my own wedding day. It just seems to be one time in your life that your a princess and feel so important. I have posted this image from the current Cosmo Bride Magazine that just seems to reflect how I am feeling right now. I love the sunlight in behind her and the umberella that she is holding is exactly the same as the one I had on my wedding day. So I suppose there is some connection. Enjoy the weekend!

This would have to be the most gorgeous Wedding blog I have seen this week! So inspiring with the whole "Alice Iin Wonderland" theme being so popular these days, I am sure you will enjoy looking through this blog. My personal favourite was the first image with the screen in the background. A little like a gown I was looking at producing...maybe I should now! Enjoy!

Bridesmaids almost complete

I have been madly hand sewing 3 adorable Bridesmaids for the weekend. I feel like an amazing journey has come to an end as this bridal party would have to be the most adorable group of family and friends. I had the pleasure of taking a trip to Sydney with my sewing machine in hand for a day of sewing and making the final bridesmaid. She and her family were so hospitable of which I truely thanked. With an 8 month baby and manovering around the large tummy, I was able to still make her look as adorable as the other 2.

Now on Sunday, I get to see the final results of this 6 month stint and see the happy married couple commit. Thank you to all and you know who you are! Looking forward to the next client.

My First Post!

Well it has taken me so long to start this blog! I have been dressmaking for the past 7 years part time in between 8 years of study and travelling to Canada to find my husband. I would like to introduce myself and hopefully inspire all those young women or men that have an interest in sewing. Not only sewing but fashion and other areas that inspire me to write about. Do hope you enjoy the journey.
