Who and what I love

I am putting together a list of some of the blogs/people and things I love..................

Blogs: The blog from the devine Sarai and Caitlin at Colette patterns  Tilly is fairly new to sewing, having only threaded a needle for the first time 2 and a half years ago. However her simple approach to writing, fabulous style and attitude will give anyone the confidence to just have a go. Caffy is another sewing newbie that has caught the dressmaking bug. (Check out her Jungle print bombshell dress -oh yeah!! and be inspired by her wild take on traditional styles) Super cool Mimi g gives brilliant tutorials to make your own clothes with downloadable patterns (Some are free) New Yorker Gertie is a retro fanantic, if you like all things retro you will love Gertie. Oregan based Suzannah loves to blog about sewing, DIY and decor on a budget Jane has been blogging since 2010 and sewing since 2009, fabulous follower of sew alongs Diana is the name of the dressmaking dummy, this blogger rises to the challenge of making loads of clothes and refashioning old clothes



Vintage Fabrics: Donna Flower is a vintage fiend's fantasy with fabrics arranged by theme my favourite are the Nauticals fabrics from the 50's.


Haberdashery: Lauras handmade ceramic buttons are each a little piece of art in themselves, beautiful on a garment or perfect presents
