  1. Whoohoo, I love a giveaway! I love seeing all the different dresses and other clothes you make. It's really hard to say what I'd like to see more of... Maybe explanations of why you've chosen a particular pattern/fabric, how you put the two together? Maybe more info on how you alter patterns to make more individual clothing?

    1. Thanks for your comment! I definitely keep in mind your ideas, but I've got a few posts planned about altering patterns to make them more individual, so keep an eye out! :)

  2. Ooh - maybe it was me! I only found your blog in the last week or so! I was really excited to find a blog based in Glasgow! I'm a relatively new sewer and I'm keen to follow your example and make various versions of the same patterns - I'd love recommendations for beginners!

    1. Maybe! Thanks for following, can I assume you are a Glasgow sewer too? If so and you're in Mandors, don't forget to say hi! It's strange how I spend most of my working day advising beginners but don't say much on here about that, so I'll be having a good think about that! :)

  3. I've recently found your blog and am busy catching up. I would love to see a "how I really wore it" segment. I often think something will work one way, but then end up styling it completely different for work and the rest of my life. g

    1. Oh a how I wore sections sounds good! Often I take my 'outfit post' pics 2 minutes before I head out the house so that how I style it, but I know I wear them again and again other ways, so yeah sharing that could be cool! :)

  4. I mostly just love seeing finished garments, so there's not much I'd change! Although I would definitely be interested in some posts about how you approach fitting, as I'm just a beginner sewist and fitting seems to be one of the trickiest pieces for me so far.

    1. I'll have a think about fitting, I'm probably not the best person to explain fitting as I'm very much shove the unfinished garment on and pin through it (and usually some flesh too!) and put it back through my sewing machine. Maybe I could address common ones though?

  5. I like hearing about fitting issues and tips for dealing with tricky bits. Also like seeing equipment and workspace - I am very nosy! Happy new year.

  7. congratulations on reaching a milestone. I mostly like seeing your finished objects but maybe what you found difficult would be good too?

  8. Congratulations for your first 100 followers, I'm sure others will come! I always read your blog, and it's interesting to me to see how patterns I would never consider for me (as I'm more "shaped" ( - aka large) than I wish) make it into your sewing projects, and you pull some fabulous garments out of them! Keep this us, I love your confidence!
