Sewing Chatter

After a few years break from uni, I think I'm finally at a point where I want to start making clothes again.
It's weird; I love sewing, crafting etc., but after 4 years of designing and pattern cutting, I lost my love for it. I really didn't enjoy pattern cutting, and much prefer the construction part of dress making, but I'm hoping that this year I'll whip up at least one of the above patterns.
I was lucky enough at my old job to be given out of season patterns (hence the lack of packaging on them) so all I need to do is source some second hand fabrics to suit the projects.

I've been reading a lot of sewing blogs lately and have felt in awe of the talent out there - it's so refreshing to read them and feel inspired again.
So, if you're a sewer please let me know - I'm always looking for more inspiration and a little nudge in the right direction :)


  1. Excellent! I was exactly the same out of uni, think it's just so intense that you need a break after, mine was about 8 years!! and it's only in the last few years I have actually made myself some stuff...oh the shame! xx

  2. Wow, I'm glad you're going to start again! I definitely need to get myself these patterns, do you know where I can get some?


i love reading your comments (but hate the blogger commenting system!) so if you'd like to chat you can find me on twitter @skye_pennant :)
