Hi guys

Just a quick note to say that I’m really excited to be featured on Kollabora’s blog as part of their ‘Meet the Maker’ series. I talk about the joy of sewing and what it’s like setting up a small sewing business.

New Years Dahlia

I’ve managed to squeeze in a precious weekend at my mum’s amidst crazy Uni project writing, the result of which is due just before Christmas. Saturday night we spent watching costume dramas* on TV and I finally got time to paint my Dahlia dress, which I’ve had finished for ages.

A while back, I asked for advise on Instagram regarding what colour to paint it in, to which the resounding answer was GOOOLD. Since then I’ve been researching what pattern to paint on it like mad (Marilla’s Print Pintrest board is always a good place to start). Sometimes the level of choice when making my own clothes massively stress me out. Does anyone else ever get that – decision anxiety? I settled on a super simple dotted pattern, a little bit inspired by the thought of snow falling (actual snow is far way off in Denmark sadly..). I think the dress will be my party frock for New Years.
