About me

I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon

Same pattern dress two

This version is my coolest dress, sort of a house dress for summer ( how retro is house dress) a slightly crinkley cotton that I thought would be good when I don't want anything sticking to my body. Keeping with that I eliminated the facings and substituted binding, which I always like because the bias makes the checks look different. I like it enough to wear it out of the house too I think.
