A Lovely Christmas Present


For Christmas I received an awesome present – The Colette Sewing Handbook. I’ve been interested in buying it for a long while but it’s such a dilemma with postage costs to New Zealand being the way they are.

I’m looking forward to sewing the patterns in the book (it comes with five) especially Truffle dress, perhaps in a mint green, and the blouse – I love me a floaty blouse.

But perhaps the thing that I’m most looking forward to is learning more about sewing. Since taking up sewing again this year I’ve had a lot of guessing to do. Which needle to use, what fabric to line with, is there a better way to do this…?. I mean google is a marvellous thing, but having all that information and the pretty pictures to go with, really is the next level.

So my question to you is Do you have any great resources/ sources of sewing knowledge?
