Hi Everyone, 

Just popping on to say that the UK fabric store, Sewisfaction, recently asked me if I would like to write a  guest post for their blog. I selected some of their beautiful blue stretch velvet and made my third version of the Pauline Alice Aldaia dress (you can see version one here, and version two here).

For all the full details of this make, including tips on cutting and sewing velvet, pop over to the Sewisfaction blog and check out my post.

This is also my entry (by the skin of my teeth!) into the #sewfrosting contest which was the brainchild of Heather and Kelly. There have been some sumptous entries, so check the hashtag out on Instgram.

I love this dress! It is the perfect throw-on-and-go dress: perfect to travel (non-crease), perfect to wear without feeling restricted and still enough to look polished. 

Until soon!

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

  1. Really pretty dress on you! Don’t know why I had never thought of velvet for a wrap dress. May have to consider that myself!
