At Dresses & Me you’ll find a great blog about all the cool things I’ve sewn and New Zealand’s largest online indie pattern store. I am an amateur seamstress, sewing enthusiast and lover of all bright and beautiful fabric.
The first garment I made was a yellow dress when I was about 14. Looking back it wasn’t the best fit and the skirt was kinda see-through but I was super proud of it and wore it dozens of times! I sewed it using my maternal Grandmother’s Elna Grasshopper (read the blog here). When I was at university (the wilderness years) sewing took a back seat as I prioritised the fine art of staying up all night writing essays that should have been done weeks ago. So when I go my first full-time job (and an income) I couldn’t wait to spend my time doing something I really enjoyed! I hit the ground running and have never looked back! I love to sew! Won’t you join me?
