Hi, I’m Sara!

I’m the writer behind this blog. I talk all about sewing projects, mainly for clothes and home decor.

My favorite way to get better at sewing is to take apart professionally made items and learn from them, so that’s how I do things differently on this blog.

I started sewing when I was 15 after “borrowing” my mum’s basic machine 😉

My first projects were some terrible looking grey trousers, and a tank top with a neckline that I didn’t bother finishing lol!

I studied GCSE Textiles the next year, making a white lace dress which was good fun.

Since then I’ve taken on more sewing projects and don’t plan on stopping. My favorite things to sew are clothes; I love the feeling of accomplishment every time I wear something I made and think, “hey, I made this!”

I live just outside London, UK.
