Who am I?
A full-time working Civil Engineer, sewing, baking, cycling mum, married to my very own Mr Jones, settled within the heart of Yorkshire.
Why do I blog?
Initially to chart my progress at craft fairs in the summer of 2013 and steer traffic to my Folksy shop.
After realising I wasn’t going to quickly become the next Cath Kidston now I blog because I love to blog and record my makes and the alterations I made, or wish I’d made to them.
I have made so many like minded crafty friends. Blogging has truely enriched my life. I am inspired by the blogs I read, finding the fitting and sizing tips especially useful, and hope to inspire those just starting out.
I never start something new without reading how others have found it, so I think the old blog world is here to stay.
I’m thoroughly obsessed with dressmaking and am thoroughly enjoying the rise and rise of the independent pattern publisher, creating modern and already iconic patterns recreated time and time again on Youtube, instagram, & facebook.
I would dearly like to have a Youtube channel but spare time is precious and so is reserved for sewing. Never say never.
I hope you enjoy my blog.
I shall blog, regardless!
Love, Lucie x
