Sewing is a recent discovery for me. As a child I was convinced I wanted to design clothes, but I ended up studying chemistry at university. I had sort of forgotten about my creative side until 2014, when I moved back to Shetland and dragged my old sewing machine out of the cupboard. I began to teach myself to sew and as I made each garment my excitement grew. I realised I could make wearable garments, that fit my tall frame and were unique to my personality. I started reading sewing blogs for inspiration and decided I wanted to join the discussion. I started this blog in Jan 2015 and I hope it will be an excellent way to document my makes, meet likeminded people and explore my love of sewing.
