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.

High Waisted Denim Shorts Finished!

As you may have seen in my previous post a while back I attempted some high waisted denim shorts, which were short-like but too imperfect even for me.  So several months later, I decided to see what I could make of them, and I'm quite pleased with the result.
I added pleats in the waist to take it in, and a longer zip to make it easier to get on, I made a waist band from some left over V and A fabric my sister gave me, and then I hemmed the bottom. :)
