Occasionally it seems that world is in pure chaos with nothing making sense, but that doesn't matter as long as I can sew. Sewing is a form of art, or at the very least creativity, and a form of expression. A great outlet for the tension of everyday life. Also you can make cute things. The craft revolution is truly taking place, old skills are being revived by a new generation, but with a seriously modern twist.

I've made Mario pillow cases, a giraffe print background, and turned duvet covers into summer dresses. I enjoy making something unique, special, and me- then I like wearing it and watching it fall to pieces or not fit properly. Then I enjoy (slightly less) fixing it.

One day I shall have a room filled with glorious fabrics and boxes of notions, and on that day I will have found my nirvana. But until then this blog will exist as my virtual haberdashery and sewing room. Hopefully you'll enjoy looking at my creations as much as I enjoy looking at other blogs, and you'll be inspire to make something of your own.

Times Gone By Look Book

Well of course there were a million cool vintage pics I could have chosen for this one, although I did think I had more than I actually did, but I wanted stuff to fit into a brown/yellow colour scheme.  I felt like my look books had been a bit stuck in sliver and glitter.  But it turned out to be tricksy to find appropriate pics in the right colours.  But I would totally wear this outfit, especially the glasses :)
