My sewing makes are generally found on Instagram here . though I will try and blog about them occasionally, photos permitting! My favourite things to sew are coats and jackets. Wool is very forgiving to work with and I always prefer the look of a lining to an overlocked seam. Small selection of coats and jackets I have made below.
I sew almost exclusively with indie patterns – in fact the only non indie pattern I’ve ever used is for doll’s clothing! My favourites are from Sew Over It London, Named Patterns, Louis Antoinette Paris. I love making coats and I dislike making trousers. I also do a little quilting and stitchery.
My stash is 3 boxes big, and I am not intending to buy more at this point. I live in the UK and most of my fabrics are sourced from:
- Cotton Reel Studio
- Fabric Godmother
- Sew Over It London
- Liberty London (cotton lawns in awesome floral prints)
- Merchant and Mills (mostly linens)
- Crescent Trading (mostly wools)
