About Me

Hello, I’m Alison and welcome to my blog!

I live in London with my lovely husband Dave, and Peggy the Cat. I am a beginner stitcher, hoping to keep this online diary as I progress on to being a fully fledged, grown-up stitcher and beyond!

I love to cook, I love to eat, and I have developed a possibly unhealthy addiction to charity / second hand / vintage shops hunting for a beautiful bargain. At the last count I was the (somewhat bashful) owner of 52 dresses…

I find being able to make something from nothing hugely satisfying, and taking inspiration from ‘old stuff’ (mainly the 1920s – 1960s). I hope to one day be able to make many more lovely dresses to add to my modest collection.

    • I’m afraid I don’t know Andree. I just happened to come across my one at a market stall, rather than searching it out. You could try and internet search though?

      Sorry I can’t be of more help.

  1. Hi Alison I really found your blog helpful and would like to have more friends to chat to about dress making. I love the forties and fifties styles my goal is to learn how to make my own clothes 🙂 feel free to add me on face book.
