Sewing Blog

Welcome to our sewing blog! You will find out about all our projects among these pages. We create lots of our garments a wear them as everyday item and for special occasions.

Our garments are created from commercial and independent pattern companies and from our own designs and pattern drafting. We usually work with a printed woven fabric which we source from a variety of fabric stores.

Take a read of the sewing blogs below to find out more.
