Psst! Did you know I'm doing a giveaway?

Yes a giveaway! Just a little one over here

This nifty little zine if perfect if you don't know a needle from a pin or if you'd like learn some basic techniques on repairing clothing - perfect for all those vintage items that need a little love.

To win all you have to do is tell me something you would like to learn. It doesn't have to be sewing related (but that would be good so I can set up some tutorials!)

I will pick a winner tomorrow at 7pm AEST (in 24 hours) and have it sent out to you wherever you are in the world!

Good luck! xo

      What I'm interested in learning is sewing a button up shirt ... And fly front ...
      And also fitting, I'd like to be better at fitting ...

    3. Great! Thanks for letting me know!!

  2. I would be interested in learning how to sew sleeves on the "body part" ( sorry , i don't know how to say it in english) . Each time i try , it's not perfect ... i 'm so discouraged that the 2 last dresses i sew are sleeveless !
    Whatever , i love your dresses !

    1. Thanks for entering! Is the word your looking for 'Bodice'?
      I am about to set the sleeves in to a top I am making tonight! So I will take photos as I go and write up a tutorial.
      I only learnt how to do this properly a few months ago myself, so the problems I had with inserting the sleeve into the armscye is fresh in my mind!

    2. Yes , it's "bodice" ! Can't wait to learn !

  3. Am I too late to enter?
    I hope not!
    What I would love to learn is how to play piano fluently.
    I cannot express the determination that I had years ago to teach myself to play. I would spend hours listening to classical pieces and would do everything in my power to replicate the notes played by my favourite composers. And after all that effort I put in I became quite successful. However over the years I have lost the touch of it and it pains me that I can't remember the chords that I had once played with ease.
    So yes, that is what I would like to learn (again): piano.

  4. I would love to know how to do a good hem and also how to do a line of buttons.

    1. Sure! I'll add that to the list! Just so you know the giveaway has been won - but thank you for answering anyway!
      Have a great day
