About me

I have always loved making things. I  got my sewing machine from my mum for my birthday a few years ago but until recently it had been sitting there unloved.  A few years ago I decided that it was time I gave dressmaking a try as I was having trouble finding clothes I liked on the high street that also suited my limited budget. My mum is a wizard  with the sewing machine, even making my sister's wedding dress and the bridesmaids' outfits so I turned to her for advice. I started with some pyjama bottoms, then a simple dress for myself and now I'm hooked. I love reading sewing blogs so I thought why not start my own.

I'm a mum to a not-so-little girl now. I mainly make things for myself but also make the odd thing for her in the hope that she will wear it. I am also a keen knitter so may post about my knitting here too!

I also have a gorgeous ginger cat called Oscar who I love very much. He's very lazy and spends most his time sleeping, oh apart from when I want to knit or sew!


I hope you enjoy reading about the things I've made. I'm enjoying creating this blog and I'm learning so much as I go.

I'd love to hear from any other fellow stitchers or anyone interested in my blog. You can get in touch by either leaving a comment or by sending me an email: stylishstitcher@gmail.com.
