Hello world – introducing myself with Butterick B5781 – the cute skater type dress.

I hope that this blog will allow me to share my sewing projects with other members of the world wide sewing community…at least, those who are interested. I love looking at other peoples work, and I would love to hear back from other fashion sewers out there. I have never started a blog before….much like the sewing, I am learning as I go along…will post a picture of my latest sewing project shortly. It’s Butterick B5781. Now, I confess, one of the reasons I was drawn to this pattern was due to the fact it was on 50% sale, but I liked the princess seams on the bodice, the pleating detail on the skirt, and the pockets. I will post some pictures of the finished garment later…..

By day I work in the exciting world of pharmaceutical regulatory affairs, registering medicines (!), but by night I turn in to a sewing diva, making all manner of clothes in my beautiful sewing space (which you can tour using the link at the top of this blog). I love how sewing and sewing clothes that fit my curvy body continually challenges me. I enjoy working with all different types of fabric, and whilst I don't like to put restrictions on myself and say I won't buy RTW, the truth is that I probably rarely do buy it, preferring the fit of my own me-made clothes. I love to use natural fibres where ever possible and colourful coats are an obsession of mine! Sewing is both my addiction and my therapy. You can contact me at sewmanju@yahoo.co.uk
