Hi there,

This is my first time posting here, I credit this site with my wanting to blog as I learn to sew Vintage inspired clothing.

I am relatively new to sewing clothing, but I have been sewing and crafting for as long as I can remember, really.  And I am totally hooked on crafting things that I can wear!

My friend is a plus-sized pin up model and I offered her some wears in exchange for pictures at her next shoot. The results are below; a seafoam high waist bikini and a floral, sweatheart neck apron. I tackled four new skills this time;

  • Drafting a pattern
  • sewing with stretch items
  • sewing for someone else and
  • making swimwear

A few hiccups were had, but in all I am pretty happy. If you like, you can see the full story at my blog redhotrosie.wordpress.com

I love the cut on the bottom

I love to craft, my passion to craft led to sewing from a very young age and my penchant for vintage clothing and ladylike glamour moulded the general themes that I more or less stick to. In real life I’m a cook in a cafe, and I dont always wear my creations (c’mon it’s just not practical in a commercial kitchen). I am engaged and live in Perth.
