There are no sewing mistakes - only opportunities for design features.

I am so excited! I went into Miracle today. It's a lovely baby shop here in Dunedin, (where I buy my flushable nappy liners.) I've talked to the staff there before about the possibility of selling my designs (after they commented on my red coat, hehehe), and today I took in what I've done so far. I was utterly stoked to get a very positive response, some very useful suggestions, and willingness to sell them. The staff member I spoke to said that she thought my first coat could go for about $120, and the matching pinafore for about $80! I was very pleasantly surprised to put it mildly! I'm going to finish the things that need bits and bobs done and make a couple more things and see where that takes me. This is such a fun way to use my spare (HA!) time when inpspiration for my own sewing is sadly lacking.
Who am I? I'm a lifelong sewer with a degree in Clothing and Textiles so I can pretend I know stuff. I love a challenge when I'm sewing! I dream of one day making a living from sewing, and to that end I've begun designing and making childrens clothes. We'll see how that goes.
I'd have more time to sew if I didn't have five kids, the youngest being four year old twins. Life's busy and I love it.
