Hi! I’m Rachel and I have a recently-rediscovered passion for sewing.
Last Sunday marked my two month blog-iversary and I’ve loved every minute!
In that time I have made a lot of progress, always a few steps forward even things weren’t quite going to plan. I have also met some amazing people who happen to share my passion. I can only thank you all for your support in the past couple of months, it’s been great to meet you!
To celebrate this occasion I’ve compiled a little collage of first two months. I can’t believe I’ve fit so much into just over eight weeks!
My sewing projects so far have followed a scatter gun approach, like a magpie I have picked and chosen patterns which most appealed to me with the general aim of picking up new techniques along the way. I’ve decided that now I have given my myself a good grounding in dressmaking I feel its time to consolidate that knowledge and set myself some sewing goals for the rest of the year.
By 31st December 2014 I aim to:
I will aim to teach myself something new with every make, be it my first french seam or mastering those pleats which fried my brain the last time around! As always I will seek to pass on everything I learn to yourselves as I go along.
I am also aiming to tweak the design of my blog in the next few months, making it as user-friendly as possible. Fingers crossed I should be mobile accessible very soon – a big milestone for me. You should hopefully have seen a couple of updates already as I tidy things up a bit.
That’s all for now but I will leave you now with my biggest achievement of my fledgling sewing career, my version of 8523 E making it on the Kollabora banner! I can’t begin to tell you how exciting this was (and still is) for me!
