This is my portfolio shows and it shows in chronological order, the items I have made over the past few years. I have progressed from using a book called “Love at First Stitch” by Tilly Walnes that breaks sewing and dress making into basic easy to follow steps, to following commercial patterns, adapting patterns and finally I have started to create my own patterns. I have tried to learn techniques such as inserting zips, sewing button holes, constructing pockets etc. via books, magazines and the internet. With each project I try to push myself by ensuring it teaches me a new skill, I also look to work with different types of fabrics such as jersey, satin and lace.
Have a scroll through my portfolio and see what you make of my sewing journey. Each project has a page with the fabric swatches, sketches and technical drawings and another page with photographs of the final article.
I know there is still a lot of room for improvement but I am proud of what I have produced so far and am excited to share my next projects with you!my portfolio
