Have you got something in mind for a project?

I have one of mum's (homemade) dresses from the mid 50's which I love but is a bit tight. I would like to be able to re-create this dress.

How would you rate your sewing on a scale of 1 to 10?

7-ish. A little bit rusty but I know what a French seam is and can even sew one!

Is there any specific skill that you would like to learn?

Pattern making or adapting patterns.

Is there any specific skill that you would be happy to share with others?

Can't think of anything specific but happy to share anything that others might find useful.

Where did you hear about the group? A flyer? If online, what website was it.

Found it using a google search for sewing groups.


I started sewing when I was about 10. My mum and grandmother inspired me and I went on to make many of my own clothes. I have just started sewing again after a 15 years (?!) break after going on a course and it has rekindled my love for sewing.
