Ever since I was young I have always loved making things. Fast-forward to 2006 and I learnt to make a simple A-line skirt in an evening class and never looked back. My biggest achievement to date was to make my wedding dress from scratch, including pattern and working with lace. You can read about that and see the pictures on this blog.
I'm crazy about Elvis and just fulfilled my dream of visiting Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee. I love vintage fashion, particularly the early 1960s, but I also appreciate contemporary fashion from designers such as Erdem, Etro and Stella McCartney. In the future, I want to explore working with eco fabrics as I am vegetarian and a keen environmentalist.
When I'm not sewing I'm hanging out with my awesome husband watching Breaking Bad and trying not to eat my weight in Toblerone chocolate.
